Theory of Everything | 2014 | Dir. James Marsh
Date: Tuesday, 16 April 2019, 7pm – 11pm
Venue: Spazju Kreattiv Cinema
Science tells us we should be able to explain and link together all physical aspects of the universe in one single, unified theory: a theory of everything. CineXjenza invites you to come and share your opinions and learn about whether physicists will ever reach this elusive “ultimate theory”. The discussion will be an open forum and our science communication experts will facilitate dialogue between the audience and researchers from the University of Malta encouraging sharing of different perspectives and opinions.
The Theory of Everything is the romantic biopic providing a glimpse into the extraordinary life of one of modern times most renowned scientists – Prof. Stephen Hawking. Beginning with his 1960s Cambridge college days where he falls in love with Jane Wilde, The Theory of Everything follows Hawking through his life long struggle with Motor Neurone Disease after being given just two years to live following the diagnosis when he was only 21 years old. Against his initial want for Jane to leave him, she stands by his side ultimately to become Jane Hawking. The diagnosis places time constraints on what he wants to accomplish, completing his Ph.D. dissertation on a revolutionary idea on the creation of the universe chief among them.
CineXjenza is supported by the STEAM project. It is run by the Malta Chamber of Scientists, in collaboration with SpazjuKreattiv and S-Cubed. Wine and light refreshments will be served during the discussion.
