Doyne Farmer

SFI News:

The popular Science on Screen series continues at 7 p.m. today, Aug. 20 at the Center for Contemporary Arts, 1050 Old Pecos Trail, in Santa Fe.

Santa Fe Institute External Professor Doyne Farmer will illuminate John Boorman’s 1974 sci-fi cult classic Zardoz from his unique perspective as a physicist, complexity theorist, and “rogue economist.”

Sean Connery stars as Exterminator Zed in a postapocalyptic future featuring a flying stone head, revered as a god but with murderous intent, and two classes of inhabitants leading very different lives.

For tickets and prices, call the CCA Box Office at 505-982-1338.

Science on Screen is a collaboration of SFI and the Center for Contemporary Arts 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.
