ASMR WA & Scitech Science in the Cinema 2019

hero


Movie: Arrival (2016, M)
When mysterious spacecrafts touch down across the globe, an elite team - lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) - is brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers – and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity. Watch preview here.

The scientific themes within this film are many and will set the scene for a lively discussion between attendees and our expert panellists.

Dr David Lewis (Psychology, Murdoch University)
Dr Sender Dovchin (School of Education, Curtin University)
Ben Ainslie and Daniel Midgley (Presenters on RTRFM's "Talk the Talk" Podcast)
