Science on Screen series at MoMI
Science on Screen at the Museum of the Moving Image pairs screenings of rarely-seen films with conversations between scientists and filmmakers that offer new perspectives on both film and scientific subject matter. Films span from the silent era through those made for the Internet; subjects range from seahorses to robotic clones. The series has featured the work of such filmmakers as Isabella Rossellini, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Agnieszka Holland, and Alex Rivera, who have discussed topics including marine organisms, reproductive biology, and human-robot interactions with scientists including Mandë Holford, Fabien Cousteau, and Maria Gloria Dominguez-Bello. Science on Screen is organized by Sonia Epstein, Executive Editor and Associate Curator of Science and Film. The series is an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, with major support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
