On Wednesday, October 18th, we challenge you to join us at Cobble Hill Cinemas to learn about the existence of everything and ruminate on all that's to come. Not for the faint of heart.
We will kick off our back-to-back programming at 7 PM
with a screening of Polish artist Norman Leto's film, Photon
, followed by our short film series, Transhuman Diaries. PHOTON
Feature-length film program
Nothing less than an attempt to summarize all existence from the origins of matter to the entropic dissolution of the universe (along with all of human civilization, past, present, and future), Photon
is a uniquely ambitious creation. It's also an extraordinary challenge to preconceptions of the science documentary, merging rigorously researched data visualizations with distinctly subjective and irrelevant writing that forces the viewer to question the assumed monolithic authority of the sci-film narrator. Is any film expressing fallible human ideas really more of a documentary than the wildest sci-fi speculation? Watch, and decide for yourself.
