Screening of “The Fly Room” by Alexis Gambis ’03

This Tuesday, November 3,¬†Alexis Gambis ’03 will be on campus to show his film, The Fly Room.

In May 2013 Alexis came to the Bard campus to film The Fly Room with the help of Bard students, alumnae, faculty, and staff. He is delighted to return to share the film with the Bard Community. Please come out to support this very Bardian film.

Alexis is a French-Venezuelan scientist, filmmaker, and founder of Imagine Science Films, a nonprofit focused on scientific storytelling through film. The Fly Room, his first feature film, is a sweeping yet intimate portrait of the complicated relationship between Calvin Bridges, father of modern genetics, and his wide-eyed, ten-year-old daughter Betsey. The story helps bring to life one of the most important scientific laboratories of the 20th century, taking place predominantly in one location: the original Fly Room laboratory at Columbia University.

Tuesday, November 3, 2015. 5:00 to 7:00 pm.
Running time: 75 minutes. Q&A to follow. Refreshments.
