Reel Science: Cronenberg's The Fly at Digital Gym Cinema
May 3, 2019
The Reel Science Film Series returns for its third edition with a new slate of science-fiction movies every Friday of May. Featured films will be paired with a local scientist who will provide contextualized and corrective feedback about the scientific themes presented following each screening. The series is a collaboration between San Diego Natural History Museum (The Nat), Digital Gym Cinema, and the Film Geeks San Diego. The Fly is a 1986 science-fiction biological horror film that tells the story of an eccentric scientist who, after one of his experiments goes wrong, slowly turns into a fly-hybrid creature. Introduction and contextualized and corrective commentary will be provided by UC San Diego cognitive science Ph.D. candidate Eric Leonardis.
