ASMR WA & Scitech present Science in the Cinema

Proudly presented by the Australian Society for Medical Research (ASMR) and Scitech, this year’s Science in the Cinema will be screening sci-fi film, Arrival (M).

Plot summary

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. To find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life – and quite possibly humanity.

Event summary

We will kick off the evening by watching the first half of the movie followed by a break for a panel discussion about the scientific topics explored in the film. We will then close out the night with some pizza before watching the second half of the film.

  • 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)
  • Dr Frances Marcus Lewis (Professor, University of Washington, Affiliate Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center)
