The Santa Fe Institute (SFI) presents Science On Screen: “Serenity” with Cris Moore, 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 1, at the Center for Contemporary Arts (CCA), 1050 Old Pecos Trail in Santa Fe.
A band of outlaws out on the raggedy edge of space. A brilliant psychic escaping from the government. An experiment in social engineering gone horribly wrong. Join Captain Malcolm Reynolds, River and Simon Tam, Jayne, Wash, Zoe, and Inara of the beloved series Firefly as they try to right wrongs and be left alone. We aim to misbehave.
The popular Science On Screen series continues July 1 with returning speaker Cris Moore’s presentation of Joss Whedon’s 2005 space Western Serenity. Professor Moore will introduce the Nebula- and Prometheus Award-winning film with a brief talk and help place it in scientific context. Moore presented Primer at Science On Screen in 2013.
Advance tickets are recommended. For tickets and prices, call the CCA Box Office at 505.982.1338.
The Science On Screen series is a collaboration between SFI and the Center for Contemporary Arts (CCA) in Santa Fe. During each showing, an SFI scientist presents a favorite film, offering personal perspectives and insights from the world of science. It’s an idea-rich spin on the movies.
