Murray Gell-Mann (Distinguished Fellow, Santa Fe Institute)
The series is a joint collaboration of SFI and the Center for Contemporary Arts (CCA) in Santa Fe. During each showing, an SFI scientist presents a favorite film, offering personal perspectives from the world of science. It's an idea-rich spin on the movies.
The encore series, presented in conjunction with the Coolidge Corner Theater and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, offers six classic films selected by SFI scientists.
The Gods Must Be Crazy with Murray Gell-Mann. A wayward Coca-Cola bottle upsets the balance in a utopian African village, setting off a chain of unlikely events, including bewildering (and hilarious) confrontations with “modern culture.” SFI’s Murray Gell-Mann, a Nobel laureate, physicist, and world traveler, supplies his distinctive insight and witty analysis of Jamie Uys’ groundbreaking 1980 comedy.
