Apocalyptic Cinema 2023
This summer CAPAS invites you together with the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science to the open-air cinema with films on the apocalypse and post-apocalypse. Admission is free - enjoy a film evening in the midst of Campus Neuenheimer Feld.
Each film evening begins with a short, scientific commentary followed by an audience discussion on the respective film. A special highlight is the ending of this year's cinema series with a discussion with Christoph Pistner, Head of Division – Nuclear Engineering & Facility Safety of Oeko-Institut, Darmstadt.
The Open-Air Cinema 2023 is the continuation of a series that started at the Mathematikon in the summer of 2021, and continues ever since at the Karlstorkino every winter.
