Science on Screen: Theater of Thought: Werner Herzog Film and Talk with Dr. Shreya Saxena

May 15 @ 6:30 pm

Real Art Ways Science on Screen® season invites you to experience the unique combination of a feature film and a relevant talk from a notable local figure in science.
Werner Herzog sets his sights on yet another mysterious landscape – the human brain – for clues as to why a hunk of tissue can produce profound thoughts and feelings while considering the philosophical, ethical, and social implications of fast-advancing neural technology.

Dr. Saxena is an Assistant Professor in the Biomedical Engineering Department and a core member of the Center for Neurocomputation and Machine Intelligence at the Wu Tsai Institute. She joined Yale in 2023 from the University of Florida’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

“A characteristically playful documentary in which the filmmaker scrambles for whatever errant insight he can find into the world of tomorrow.” – indieWire
