Enjoy a special festival screening of the beautiful new film Valley of Saints, winner of the 2012 Alfred P. Sloan Foundation prize awarded at Sundance for feature films focusing on science or technology.
An alluring young scientist returns to her exotic but troubled homeland of Kashmir and profoundly changes the life of the boatman who becomes her guide. The film is followed by a lively discussion exploring how science can help protect natural resources, enrich our connection to the environment, strengthen communities—and even begin to heal conflict zones. This intimate screening is a chance to experience a deeply moving union of science, society and story.
This program is supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation as part of its Public Understanding of Science and Technology initiative. Presented in collaboration with the Museum of the Moving Image.
