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!

To the Stars
To the Stars

To the Stars is a beautifully shot black and white film set in 1960s Oklahoma. Iris Deerborne’s world changes completely when Maggie appears and an unlikely relationship between the two develops. A mesmerizing and almost mystical film, a true gem found at Sundance.
