Evening with Film Director Ekaterina Eremenko
Our evening with Ekaterina Eremenko will include the screening of her latest film "The Discrete Charm of Geometry" (2015) and a conversation with Ekaterina.
"The Discrete Charm of Geometry" is designed to convey the joys of science to wide audiences. The film follows the journey of a team of mathematicians from the Collaborative Research Centre "Discretization in Geometry and Dynamics" as they dive into the unknown world of mathematics. United by the idea of discretization these scientists experience hope, disappointment, success, failure, and the overall excitement of discovery as they work together on a big project. The question of where the boundaries lie between mathematics and the lives of those who are involved in it, and how much they are willing to sacrifice is as important as the search for precise scientific answers.
Other films by Ekaterina Eremenko include The Sound of Russia (2003), Big Bones – Big Business (2004), My Class (2008), and Colors of Math (2012).
The event is free, but donations afterwards will be welcome. The event is in English, the film is in Russian and English, with English subtitles.
