A new series of sciSCREEN events are starting next week in Canton.

Science-themed film club sciSCREEN is organising two events at Chapter in the first week of November. Several speakers will discuss the scientific issues raised in 70s sci-fi classic Silent Running and new release We Need to Talk About Kevin at free wine receptions after screenings of the films.

University researcher and co-organiser Jamie Lewis says, “We take an almost French definition of science. We’ve had people from the humanities and social sciences speak, it’s not just hard science.”

Jamie has recently tried to incorporate classic, foreign and indie films and invite speakers with experiential knowledge. For example, a naval officer was invited to speak at The Hurt Locker event.
