InScience On Tour in Breda

Citizen Nobel

Wednesday 17 November / 19:20 – 20:55

Citizen Nobel is an inspiring portrait of Jacques Dubochet, who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2017. As a physicist that was previously virtually unknown, how should he react to his unforeseen fame? What are the possibilities of the fact that his voice is suddenly heard by all? In his old age, he decides to reinvent himself to become a key figure in the battle against climate change. His secret? A lust for life.

Birds of America

Monday 22 November / 14:00 – 15:25

Natural historian and artist John James Audubon worked on his influential book ‘Birds of America’ between 1827 and 1838. In this book, he tried to describe as many birds in the United States as possible, and also to capture them in beautiful drawings. Now, after almost 200 years, the filmmakers try to follow Audubon in his footsteps. What can we learn about our changing ecosystem from drawings that are almost 200 years old?

By the Throat

Monday 29 November / 14:00 – 15:20

Identity: we construct it from our origins, our looks, our passports, or from what we consume. A more subtle form of revealing ourselves is through our pronunciation. The way in which we pronounce words has been used to separate friend from foe since language originated. The surprising documentary By the Throat explores our vocal limits through science, technology, cultural prejudices, and politics.

In Silico

Monday 6 December / 14:00 – 16:10

In 2009 the highly ambitious Human Brain Project was announced by Henry Markram, resulting in a lot of publicity and attention. This extremely expensive project was aimed at developing a complete computer simulation of the human brain, within ten years. Director Noah Hutton was granted full access to everything that happened from the start and has managed to relentlessly capture what it was like to work on a project where there was a lot at stake – maybe even too much. In Silico immerses the viewer in the world of scientific top sport, multimillion-dollar investments, enormous egos, and even grander ambitions.
