Behind the Curve

Monday 4 November

19:30 - 21:09 Academiegebouw

Party time! We have programmed a special edition of Science & Cinema, in honour of the 444th anniversary of Leiden University. The program will feature 4 special films in unique locations, surprising events, and a very attractive €4,44 entry fee!
A flat earth? That’s ridiculous! Nonetheless, the so-called Flat Earth Society is slowly gaining traction. Behind the Curve is filled with interesting characters who are convinced that a global conspiracy is hiding the truth from us. Physicist and philosopher Victor Gijsbers and Professor of History of the natural sciences Frans van Lunteren will discuss the documentary, and perhaps reveal a few hints about the true shape of the earth!

€ 4.44

This year, LIFF will be looking into understanding through the medium of film. How do we, as viewers, relate to what is shown? By using virtual reality, lectures and personal short films, we try to find answers. Join us at Old School on Saturday 9 November!
