Film Streams is pleased to again join dozens of its national arthouse colleagues in Science on Screen®, an innovative series that creatively pairs classic, cult, and documentary films with lively talks led by notable figures from the world of science, technology, and medicine.
On Tuesday, March 27, at 7 pm, the first event in the series will center on Marjorie Prime, a film that invites us to explore the possibilities and implications of artificial intelligence. Presented in collaboration with the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Science Cafe, the film will be followed by a talk led by scientists from the Interprofessional Experiential Center for Enduring Learning (iEXCEL), a bold and visionary program at UNMC focused on improving the outcomes of care through experiential learning and new technologies — including augmented and virtual reality.
On Tuesday, May 8, at 7 pm, Film Streams again will collaborate with UNMC to present the documentary Bugs. Equal parts travelogue, nature documentary, food porn, and political treatise, Bugs travels the globe to answer a single question: Will eating insects save the Earth? A post-show conversation will feature the co-founders of Lincoln-based Bugeater Foods, Kelly Sturek and Julianne Kopf (M.S, Food Science & Technology), and Dr. Jody Green, an urban entomologist with UNL Extension.
On Tuesday, June 5, at 7 pm, Film Streams will collaborate with UNMC to present Charlie Kaufman and Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Kate Winslet and Jim Carey play exes who undergo radical procedures to erase all memories of each other. One of the most affecting love stories of the 21st century, wrapped in an inventive soft sci-fi mind-bender. A post-show conversation will include Dr. Vaishali Phatak, UNMC Department of Neurological Sciences Associate Professor, and Dr. David E. Warren, UNMC Department of Neurological Sciences Assistant Professor. Dr. Soonjo Hwang, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at UNMC, will moderate.
