Science on Screen - "Backdraft"­

I am posting the whole season of "Science on Screen" which occur on the second Tuesday of each month.  The movies start at 7:00pm; I set our Meetup time at fifteen minutes earlier so we can gather and find seats together.  Cost is $10 for non-members and $5 for Real Art Ways members; discounts for seniors and students.

Backdraft is the story of Stephen McCaffrey and his younger brother Brian, two feuding siblings carrying on an heroic family tradition in the Chicago fire department. Brian becomes involved in arson investigation, studying a puzzling series of arson attacks ignited by explosive phenomena known as backdrafts. Before the smoke clears, love affairs are rekindled and lives are shattered as the McCaffrey brothers fight to resolve their differences and solve the mystery.  Directed by Ron Howard, 1991, 137 min.

David Beauregard, Senior Forensic Specialist at Travelers will discuss the forensic science behind investigating claims filed for insurance coverage of property damage caused by fires and explosions.

    Movie was interesting before, moreso after hearing the discussion of forensic investigations and how a determination is constructed.

    Looking forward to this one. If I can get the dog walking service set up in time, I will be there.
