This film tells the story of a virus infection that initially seems like a cold, but turns out to be much more dangerous. With the disease spreading rapidly, a race against time is set in motion to understand how the virus works and gets transmitted. While social order slowly breaks down and mass panic sets in, we can follow the quest of scientists to develop a vaccine and contain the impact of the virus.
ĊineXjenza aims to spark debates around science topics raised in movies, discussing their likelihood in the future and present technologies. In this event we will be discussing how vaccines are developed in cases of pandemics after the screening of Contagion. The discussion will be held with an expert in the field from the University of Malta.
Snacks and refreshments will be served during the discussion. ĊineXjenza is supported by the STEAM Summer School project funded by the Erasmus+ of the European Union. It is run by the Malta Chamber of Scientists, in collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv.
