Now Screening: Life in the Lab

October 11, 2011

Now Screening: Life in the Lab
As a medium, film has the power to bring us into the inner world of science, breaking down misconceptions by creating an alternative narrative. Alexis Gambis, founder of the Imagine Science Film Festival, and filmmaker and scientist Valerie Weiss share their insights.

This podcast is a preview of Science & the City's upcoming event: "Celluloid Science: Humanizing Life in the Lab", which will take place Thursday, October 20, 2011. The discussion will feature Weiss among other prominent scientists and science filmmakers.

Thanks to the Center for Inquiry for co-sponsoring this event.
