Octoer 17-18, the IS program will be hosting two days of the The 8th Imagine Science Film Festival. This year’s theme is is “AIR”!
Air. Nitrogen, Oxygen, Argon, Carbon Dioxide. The substance that fills our lungs and fills the skies. The medium through which birds and airplanes glide, not to mention sound waves. Easy to overlook, impossible to live without. The 8th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival will focus on air in all its forms and meanings: respiration, aeronautics, the elemental composition of the atmosphere, weather, climate, sublimation, gas properties, the mechanics of sound, and all of the mundane and esoteric ways in which air touches everything in and beyond our world.
See a variety of short and long films that bridge the Art/Science divide, including a series on respiration and health (Sunday afternoon) and Campo Experimental, a look at the world of Brazilian Science research set against the background of the World Cup directed by Alexis Gambis, former faculty in the IS program, (Saturday evening).
Admission is free with student ID but students should RSVP at imaginesciencefilms.org/newyork.
