A Brief History of Time – Stephen Hawking Tribute Screening
April 10, 2018 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Join us as we gather together for our special tribute screening of A Brief History of Time to celebrate the life and times of Stephen Hawking with $1 from each ticket sold to be donated to the Motor Neuron Disease Institute of Australia. Errol Morris turns his camera on one of the most fascinating men in the world: the pioneering astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, afflicted by a debilitating motor neuron disease that has left him without a voice or the use of his limbs. An adroitly crafted tale of personal adversity, professional triumph, and cosmological inquiry, Morris’s documentary examines the way the collapse of Hawking’s body has been accompanied by the untrammeled broadening of his imagination. Telling the man’s incredible story through the voices of his colleagues and loved ones, while making dynamically accessible some of the theories in Hawking’s best-selling book of the same name, A Brief History of Time is at once as small as a single life and as big as the ever-expanding universe.
