Amazing Discoveries: Missing Link
On November 4 and 5 InScience Amazing Discoveries will take place, with the seven most beautiful and astonishing films in the history of InScience. In the coming weeks, we will present these unforgettable films to you, with the invitation to come and see them as you should: in the cinema with the lights off, your eyes glued to the silver screen.
In the stop-motion animation Missing Link we meet Mr. Link. He is funny and charming, but also secretly a bit lonely because he lives alone in the woods. Then he meets the adventurer Sir Lionel Frost, with whom he goes in search of his past in order to build a bridge to the future.
This film was made by studio Laika, previously good for beautiful films such as Coraline and Kubo and the Two Strings for young and old. The studio excels at original storytelling, with compelling characters and particularly beautiful animation techniques.
In the accompanying TALK, Dr. Carla Rita Palmerino elaborates on thought experiments within the theory of evolution. She herself researches thought experiments in early modern science and philosophy. Do you ever philosophize about how the world works? Do you also wonder how Darwin came up with his idea for the theory of evolution? And do you think you can gain new insights just by thinking about it? Then come and enjoy this special screening!
