The Very Best Films of InScience...

To celebrate our storied seven-year past in Nijmegen, we’ve collected some of the most highly-acclaimed, astonishing films that have been screened at InScience Festival. This means that you’ll be spending the weekend on the 4th and 5th of November discovering the miracles of our galaxy with The Farthest, an epic recount of the Voyager mission to interstellar space, told by the very scientists who embarked on this fascinating unmanned mission. Zoom your perspective right back to earth with Inventing Tomorrow , a resoundingly positive look into solutions to climate change and the teenagers who created them.Take a kaleidoscopic trip into the curious mind and world of Noam Chomsky with Michel Gondry’s animated documentary feature Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy? Another animated feature, Absolute Denial , is a singular and thrilling story of artificial intelligence and psychological downfall, and is one not to be missed!

We’re also very excited to present to you The Peacemaker , an intriguing portrait of renowned professor Padraig O’Malley and his mission to create peace in some of the most dangerous crisis zones on Earth, all while struggling with his own issues with addiction. One audience favorite returning this year is Hope Frozen , a compelling documentary depicting the life of a Thai family and their cryogenically-frozen infant daughter. Finally, experience the trials and tribulations of one of the most fascinating figures of contemporary science in Oliver Sacks: His Own Life.


The Farthest ( Emer Reynolds, 2017)
