If you were offered a drug that laser focused your concentration and let you recall everything you’ve ever heard or seen instantly, would you take it?
In the film Limitless, frustrated author, Eddie Morra, is struggling to make progress in both his professional and personal life. An old friend introduces him to an experimental pharmaceutical drug capable of letting him use 100 percent of his brain. Morra’s life is transformed instantly by this new limitless potential. As he is catapulted into a world of financial investment and ruthless business moguls, he is forced to confront hit men, drastic side effects and an ever dwindling stash of the precious pills.
CineXjenza is a science cinema event which encourages discourse around topics at the forefront of science and society. After the film screening there’s a chance to share your views and critically analyse themes expressed in this film, including the myth that ‘we only use 10% of our brains’ and other brain facts. The discussion will be an open forum and our science communication experts will facilitate dialogue between the audience and a neuroscience researcher from the University of Malta encouraging sharing of different perspectives and opinions.
CineXjenza is supported by the STEAM project. It is run by the Malta Chamber of Scientists and Science Students’ Society, in collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv.
Entrance is free.
