Rated PG-13 | 113 min. | 1996 | U.S.A.

In this dizzying, effects-driven drama, two scientists (Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton) chase tornadoes in their quest to record and study them. Taking a backseat to the wild and visually mesmerizing storms are subplots concerning a failing marriage, childhood trauma and corporate ethics. The film received multiple Academy Awards for its spectacular sound and visual effects (including the famous flying cow).
After the film, a panel of graduate researchers from the University of Utah Department of Atmospheric Sciences will share their own experiences tornado chasing and dive into the science behind severe storms.
