SCIENCE:CINEMA at the National Museum of Denmark

THREE DAYS OF SCIENCE AT THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF DENMARK
MARCH 25-27

Welcome to a weekend at the National Museum dedicated to films and debates about science!
This year’s science films will of course be shown throughout the festival, but we have also created a special science scene at the National Museum: SCIENCE:CINEMA is open for three days from 25-27 March. We open with the premiere of Ivalo Frank’s film ‘The Last Human’ about the possible origin of life in Greenland, followed by a conversation with Ivalo Frank and the film’s protagonists, scientists Minik Rosing and Anja C. Andersen. You can also discover films and talks on the rewilding of Siberia’s wilderness, the ‘dark matter’ of the universe, the microbes in our bodies, the floating ecosystems of the oceans and much more.
