Event description

Description

Short Film Program / Imagine Science Film Festival

Survival is the negotiation of many factors, internal and external, in order to maintain homeostasis. Modern medicine offers many interventions, as do psychiatry, nutrition, and many other related fields, while late night infomercials and dreams offer solutions of a more ambiguous kind. And what is the ‘normal’ point of homeostasis anyway? Are we totally certain of it or is that to subject to advance and revision? In surveying our physical and mental well-being, this program moves from the birth of the rabies vaccine in 1885 through our ongoing struggles with diabetes, and into more speculative territories.

Conversation with scientists and filmmakers follow the program!
