MarieCurie_Film

Presented by the Cambridge Science Festival

What if you could time travel to 1915 Paris and meet one of the world’s greatest scientists?

Take part in a captivating evening of narrative science & living history with a preview screening of the short film Humanity Needs Dreamers: A Visit With Marie Curie (45 mins) followed by a live, interactive audience Q & A with Marie Curie as portrayed by Susan Marie Frontczak. The event will be moderated by Maia Weinstock, deputy editor of MIT News, and includes a short panel discussion with filmmakers Jen Myronuk and Johnathan Carr.

Marie Curie (née Maria Skłodowska) is best known for the discovery of radioactivity, including the first successful treatment for cancer, but few understand the obstacles she faced just to get into the laboratory. Experience Marie’s remarkable journey from her childhood in Poland through groundbreaking research in France, and further international prominence. Humanity Needs Dreamers: A Visit With Marie Curie explores the tenacity of the human spirit and the enduring allure of scientific discovery. Recommended for ages 10+.
