Please join us for two festival screenings of Saving Mes Aynak at the InScience: Dutch International Film Festival in Nijmegen, Netherlands on November 6 & 7. InScience has put together a wonderful pairing of "film + talk" discussions for SMA:
After the screening at 18:45 on November 6, Dr. Evert van der Zweerde (Professor of Political Philosophy, Radboud University) and Dr. Paul van der Velde (Professor of Asian Studies, Radboud University) will participate in a discussion about the importance of archaeology, the unique religious history of Afghanistan, and the current political climate surrounding Mes Aynak.
On November 7 (16:45), archaeologist Niels Stoffels will provide an introduction to the film, and afterward the screening, writer Johan Roos Literair Productiehuis Wintertuin will read an impressionistic poetic report, which he will create live while watching the film.
Tickets for both events are currently available for purchase on the InScience website. InScience is a unique film festival that, "focuses purely on science film and shows the beauty and relevance of science via film to a broad audience. InScience dares science, the arts and society to enter the dialogue. The program of InScience most importantly exists of an overview of the best science films of the year."
We're proud to be a part of this important intellectual festival. We hope you will be able to join us!
