Please join the Film Society on Wednesday, December 6 at the 7:20pm screening and the post-screening panel discussion about many of the issues examined in Bill Nye: Science Guy.

The panel will include:
Richard Hudson, Senior Executive Producer, Director of Science Production at Twin Cities PBS and Jill Measells, CEO at The Works, and moderated by Ryan Johnson, Chairman of the Northstar Science Film Festival.

Bill Nye is a man on a mission: to stop the spread of anti-scientific thinking across the world. The former star of the popular kids show "Bill Nye The Science Guy" is now the CEO of The Planetary Society, an organization founded by Bill's mentor Carl Sagan, where he's launching a solar propelled spacecraft into the cosmos and advocating for the importance of science, research, and discovery in public life. With intimate and exclusive access--as well as plenty of wonder and whimsy--this behind-the-scenes portrait of Nye follows him as he takes off his Science Guy lab coat and takes on those who deny climate change, evolution, and a science-based world view. The film features Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ann Druyan, and many others.


"'Bill Nye: Science Guy' is an efficiently thought-provoking study of what it means to be a rational and analytical advocate for science in an age when deniers of evolution and climate-change often seem to have higher profiles, deeper pockets and louder voices." - Variety


Extraordinary foreign films, must-see American indies, and groundbreaking documentaries from around the world, screening weekly at the Film Society.
