"It's like having millions of pets" What scientists really think of the stem cells they cultivate.

Go with the Flow 

Directed by Meigan Henry

United States, 5 minutes 

Water can move mountains, one piece at a time. These fragments get carried downstream, often washing down into the sea to provide nutrients to many of the tiniest coastal ocean creatures. But how much nutrient-laden water enters the ocean? A team of scientists and engineers set out to wire a small corner of a remote landscape to find out.




Total Solar Eclipse 

Directed by Mathias Yun Hao Foster

Documentary of the 2017 total solar eclipse in Madras, Oregon. The documentary not only captures the solar eclipse but also the awestruck crowd.



Open Source Stories: Road to AI  

Directed by Brett Abramsky

United States, 17 minutes

How do you teach a car to drive? For many self-driving car makers and artificial intelligence researchers, the answer starts with data and sharing. Hear from luminaries from the world of artificial intelligence including: Chris Nicholson, CEO of Skymind; Liam Paull, founder of Duckietown; Karl Iagnemma, CEO and co-founder of nuTonomy; Mary “Missy” Cummings, professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Duke University; and Francois Chollet, AI researcher and author of Keras.




Detective X

 Directed by Jose Garcia

United States, 10 minutes 

A scientist and a historian from the National Institute of Standards and Technology team up to
discover the mostly forgotten history of NIST scientist Wilmer Souder. Souder was one of the first forensic science experts whose careful analysis of evidence and expert testimony sent to prison countless murderers, bootleggers, gangsters, and thieves, including the man who kidnapped Charles Lindbergh’s baby. Through their research, we learn that Souder’s involvement in that case was much greater than previously known.





Zebrafish: Practically People, Transforming the Study of Disease 

Directed by Jennifer A. Manner

United States, 10 minutes 

Despite demonstrated success and the promise of further discovery, funding for Zebrafish research is minimal, since its benefits are not as well understood as other biomedical research models. However, these small, transparent fish yield large quantities of accurate data for disease modeling and drug screening. The implications for medical research and scientific advancement are astounding.




Water is Life

Directed by Joseph Erb

United States, 5 minutes 

An animated film that talks about the issue of the Standing Rock Sioux Nation and their struggle to survive as they try to protect the water source into their small nation. Narrated by The Standing Rock Chairman. 



Hello, World  

Directed by Charles Powell

United States, 2 minutes 

What would it be like to see how computers think or even dream? How might their binary language translate to sound and image? Binary code drives the visual editing and musical score of this short experimental work that asks us to think like our smartphones and future robotic overlords.
