A Moment of Science: LIFF Laboratory Edition


Laboratories in films are no longer populated by scientists without ethics, like Frankenstein, and test tubes filled with colorful, simmering, and ultimately meaningless chemicals. Indeed: science in film is becoming more and more realistic.

In a feature-length, evening-filling program, scientific journalist George van Hal (de Volkskrant) uses a diverse collection of famous film scenes, short sci-fi films, and other clips in order to demonstrate how fact and fiction have been influencing each other, and have been pushing each other to greater heights.

For anyone who has looked at everything from chalkboards filled with complex math equations to the search for intelligent alien life forms and wondered: what is actually true about this?
