Science on Screen is a film series that pairs feature films with innovative and engaging local scientists. Before the film, Ronald Mallett, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus and Research Professor, Department of Physics, University of Connecticut, will discuss the real promise and possibilities of time travel. Dr. Mallett will field Q&A after the film.
From filmmaking to physics, controlling mortality has long been a creative and scientific pursuit. Fixated on the possibility of conquering time, two men find inspiration by bringing facets of H.G. Wells' 1895 novel The Time Machine to life.

The 2016 political campaign season was incredibly stressful and contentious. It divided families, distanced friends, and challenged our perceptions of the country at large. The subsequent election of Donald J. Trump as the nation's 45th President has deepened the divide among citizens and residents of the country. This exhibition, inDIVISIBLE, will explore themes of democracy and the American electoral system. We are looking for works that are reflective of your thoughts, experiences, and reactions to the political events of the past ten months and the impact these events have had on you personally, professionally, socially, philosophically, and/or culturally.
All local, regional, and national artists are welcome to apply. Call deadline is Friday, February 3 at 11:59pm. Submission fee is $30 for 3 entries; $5 for each entry thereafter. inDIVISIBLE will be on view at the Eclipse Mill Gallery March 10 - May 14, 2017.
