Premier of BBC’s World of Wonder series among highlights of Edinburgh Science Festival Film strand
The film strand of the Edinburgh’s Science Festival taking place between the 3-17 April includes preview screenings of the BBC’s new World of Wonder series films, American documentary Blast! – a giddy journey in to the complex world of astrophysics and Yavar Abbas’ mind-boggling Journey To the Edge of the Universe, an attempt to map the trip from Earth to infinity. Elsewhere 400 Years of the Telescope tells you all you need to know about the astrologer’s weapon of choice, and Age of Stupid and An Inconvenient Truth make the case for global warning, mass consciousness and political activism. Some of the screenings will also be followed by question and answer sessions. Ticket offers available. Visit www.sciencefestival.co.uk for more information.
