The popular Science On Screen series continues with Santa Fe Institute (SFI) Postdoctoral Fellow Clio Andris presenting Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 dark comedy Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.
The presentation begins at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 28 at the CCA, 1050 Old Pecos Trail in Santa Fe. Advance tickets are recommended. For tickets and prices, call the CCA Box Office at 505-982-1338.
The legendary Peter Sellers stars in Kubrick’s satire of Cold War-era mutually assured destruction, nuclear hysteria, and U.S.-Russian relations. Andris will draw from her expertise in 20th century America, geography, and social networks to explore this landmark film and the significance of Cold War satire.
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.
