4th Annual IMAGINE SCIENCE FILM FESTIVAL
MARCH 8-10, 2018
Imagine Science Abu Dhabi
Highlighting science & art in the UAE, the Gulf, and beyond.
IMAGINE SCIENCE FILMS RETURNS TO ABU DHABI FOR ITS FOURTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR!

Imagine Science Films is excited to announce that it will be part of of the third season of The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi. We are excited to bring science cinema to this beautiful performing arts center that can, as Executive Artistic Director Bill Bragin states, "Foster Great Empathy" and "Bring us Together."

Last week, the Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi kicked off the 2017-18 season with the mesmerizing PIXEL show. In this ecletic performance combining dance, interactive media and narrative drama, "bodies and images merged in a 3D landscape at the border of virtual and real, to create a world of poetry and dreams at the crossroads of the arts." This French troupe has performed in over 100 different cities and this performance marks their UAE debut. Created in 2014 and seen now in around 100 different cities around the world, PIXEL features the Mourad Merzouki's choreography and digital projection by Adrien M and Claire B.

It feels like a natural sign of what is to come and the necessity of merging science and arts in performances and cinematic experiences. Through the lens of scientific visual imagery from the Gulf region, get ready to experience new ways of understanding our planet and what we can do to take care of it ... and each other.
