• Boston Film Premiere: "Colors of Math"

Official Selection, Imagine Science Film Festival, NYC, November 2012

Tuesday, November 13, 2012
1:00-3:30pm
C. Walsh Theatre, 55 Temple St
Suffolk University, Boston

Documentary filmmaker Ekaterina Eremenko presents her latest film, Colors of Math, in its Boston-area premiere. Eremenko is famous for unique, innovative documentaries. Colors of Math was a great success at the International Film Festival in Moscow this summer and, at screening time, will be fresh from the annual Imagine Science Film Festival in New York City.  

This intellectually stimulating and beautifully shot film invites us to look at math from a new angle – as the arena of the senses. To most people math appears abstract, mysterious. Complicated. Inaccessible. But math is nothing but a language to express the world. Math can be sensual. In this documentary, the beauty of math, its sounds, colors, taste, and texture are revealed through the eyes of contemporary mathematical geniuses Cédric Villani, Aaditya V. Rangan, Jean-Michel Bismut, Günter Ziegler, Maxim Kontsevich, and Anatoly Fomenko.

Free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Mathematics and Computer Science, Communication and Journalism, and Philosophy Departments, as well as the Dean's office in the College of Arts and Sciences at Suffolk University.
