Community Event

The popular Science On Screen series continues Tuesday evening, August 20, in Santa Fe with SFI External Professor Doyne Farmer and Zardoz.

Sean Connery stars as Exterminator Zed in a postapocalyptic future featuring a flying stone head, revered as a god but with murderous intent, and two classes of inhabitants leading very different lives. Farmer will illuminate John Boorman's 1974 sci-fi cult classic from his unique perspective as a physicist, complexity theorist, and "rogue economist."

The show begins at 7:00 p.m. at the CCA, 1050 Old Pecos Trail, in Santa Fe. Advance tickets are recommended. For tickets and prices, call the CCA Box Office at 505-982-1338.

Science On Screen is a 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 and insights from the world of science. It's an idea-rich spin on the movies.

SFI and CCA presented seven Science on Screen events in 2012. (Watch the 4-minute trailer for "Groundhog Day with Murray Gell-Mann," screened May 17, 2012, at the CCA.)
