Ways of Seeing

Tuesday, January 23, 2:00–3:30 p.m.
Filmmaker Lodge, 550 Main St., second floor

How we see science and its place in our world has a lot to do with who we see doing it and what’s being done. The images and representations we engage with through popular culture spark our imagination, inform our values, and shape our understanding of scientists, their work, technology, the natural world, and the cosmos. So it bodes well that as science reveals new visions and dimensions of nature, storytellers are exploring different ways of seeing, bending those perceptions through fresh stories and innovative approaches to narrative, style, and performance. Join Darren Aronofsky (SPHERES: Songs of Spacetime), Kevin Hand (Planetary Scientist/Astrobiology, Project Scientist for the Europa Lander Mission Concept), Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures, Shape of Water), Shonte Tucker (Systems Engineer at NASA/JPL), and moderator Kerry Bishé (Halt and Catch Fire).

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
