Mapping the Unseen: A Science Film Showcase

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and Imagine Science Films present:

Clips and commentary from filmmakers and scientists
with receptions before and after the program. 

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 

International House at the University of Chicago
1414 E. 59th Street, Chicago, IL 5:30-9:00pm 

5:30PM: Opening reception
6-8PM: Films & discussion
8-9PM: Closing reception with filmmakers and scientists 


How do we measure or observe the world just outside our reach?
A spectrum of scientist-filmmakers investigate our near, and perhaps not-so-near, surroundings. An Adler Planetarium program visits the upper atmosphere (and edge of space). A grandson considers the laws of thermodynamics in an empty house. Abstract phenomena and complicated communications systems are visualized via animation and computer modeling. Each film, or set of films, will be followed by discussion of the themes between scientists and filmmakers.
