SCIENCE. ART. FILM Interstellar + Panel

Matthew McConaughey leads as Cooper in this Christopher Nolan science fiction epic, starring alongside Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, Michael Caine, and Matt Damon. In the wake of ecological collapse, Cooper must pilot a team in search of a suitable alternate planet if the species, and his children, are to survive. While Nolan once more delivers a compelling story illuminated by gripping performances from his ensemble cast, it is the Oscar and BAFTA-winning visual effects that make Interstellar a truly memorable film.  
Interstellar paints a fascinating speculative picture of agricultural and technological futures. Join us after the movie for an insightful panel discussion exploring the significance and possibilities of the techno-imaginaries shown in the film and their implications for our society. 
‘Like the great space epics of the past, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar distils terrestrial anxieties and aspirations into a potent pop parable, a mirror of the mood down here on Earth’ – The New York Times 
This screening is part of the SCIENCE. ART. FILM. series presented by the National Film and Sound Archive, Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science and ANU Humanities Research Centre.


Speakers to be announced soon.
