It is the eve of the discovery of a duplicate Earth. Tragedy strikes, and the lives of two strangers become irrevocably intertwined. But when one of them is presented with the opportunity to travel to the other Earth and embrace an alternate reality, which path will she choose? Can the mistakes made on our Earth be undone, or will they also be made on the other? We hosted a special preview screening of the much-anticipated Fox Searchlight film Another Earth—recipient of this year’s Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film and the Special Jury Prize at Sundance – 2011. A post screening discussion then explored the art and the science of parallel universes.
This program was supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation as part of its Public Understanding of Science and Technology initiatives.
