End: April 3, 2019 6:00 PM
Venue: Star Hall
Address:
159 E Center St, Moab, UT
Cost: Free

Directed by Sam Peckinpah
144 min | 1969 | USA | Rated R
Cast: William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan

Pre-film discussion starting at 6:00pm with W.K. Stratton, author of the new book “The Wild Bunch: Sam Peckinpah, a Revolution in Hollywood, and the Making of a Legendary Film”. Film starts at 6:30pm.

 
Celebrating its 50th Anniversary, Sam Peckinpah’s film The Wild Bunch, named one of the greatest films of all time by the American Film Institute, is the story of a gang of outlaws that is one big steal from retirement. When their attempted train robbery goes awry, the gang flees to Mexico and falls in with a brutal general of the Mexican Revolution, who offers them the job of a lifetime. Conceived by a stuntman, directed by a blacklisted director, and shot in the sand and heat of the Mexican desert, the movie seemed doomed. Instead, it became an instant classic with a dark, violent take on the Western movie tradition.

THE WILD BUNCH

Start: April 2, 2019 7:00 PM
End: April 2, 2019 7:00 PM
Venue: The City Library
Address:
210 E. 400 S., Salt Lake City, UT
Cost: Free

Directed by Sam Peckinpah
144 min | 1969 | USA | Rated R
Cast: William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan

Pre-film discussion starting at 6:30pm with W.K. Stratton, author of the new book “The Wild Bunch: Sam Peckinpah, a Revolution in Hollywood, and the Making of a Legendary Film”.

 
The Western, a genre steeped in legend and the concept of loyalty, was a dying breed when Sam Peckinpah unleashed this amoral and violent opus. Along with Bonnie and Clyde, it ushered in a new breed of Hollywood film, depicting a harsh reality where lines between right and wrong became blurred. Peckinpah brilliantly used aging Western stars such as Ryan and Holden to convey this passing of the cinematic torch. The film brought issues of violence and morality in movies to the forefront of American film criticism. Instead of appreciating the film as a critique of brutal violence, many critics responded by rejecting what they saw as a superfluous spectacle of dead bodies.

Pre-film discussion with Professor Sylvia Torti, Associate Professor, Honors College, University of Utah, will speak on plant biology, botany, and soil biology. Her discussion will address whether Mark’s solution is realistic, if it’s possible to grow food in an environment with limited resources essential to farming, and how Earth’s changing climate might necessitate innovation in food cultivation.

From legendary director Ridley Scott (Alien, Prometheus) comes a gripping tale of human strength and the will to survive. During a mission to Mars, American astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead and left behind. But Watney is still alive. Against all odds, he must find a way to contact Earth in the hope that scientists can devise a rescue plan to bring him home.

Post-film discussion featuring competing students, coordinated by Jody Oostema, Program Manager, Utah Science and Engineering Fair.

 
Every year, over 1,700 students from 75 countries compete in the annual International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), a highly competitive showcase of the world’s top young scientific minds. Selected from millions of students who qualified through sanctioned events to reach the international competition, these finalists are competing for the coveted top prize that, as one previous winner explains, “will change your life in ways you won’t even comprehend.”

Science Fair follows one mentor and nine students from around the world as they prepare their projects and team for the 2017 ISEF event in Los Angeles. Though all are participating for the love of science, we also learn that there are other underlying influences motivating them to pursue their dreams of participating in the competition. Featuring interviews with the charming young scientists, their parents and mentors, as well as past ISEF winners, this absorbing film illuminates a group of amazing young men and women who are on a path to change the world through science.

Post-film discussion with Tucker Hermans, founding member of The University of Utah Robotics Center.

 
With more board configurations than there are atoms in the universe, the ancient Chinese game of Go has long been considered a grand challenge for artificial intelligence. On March 9, 2016, the worlds of Go and artificial intelligence collided in South Korea for an extraordinary best-of-five-game competition, coined The DeepMind Challenge Match. Hundreds of millions of people around the world watched as a legendary Go master took on an unproven AI challenger for the first time in history.

Directed by Greg Kohs with an original score by Academy Award nominee, Hauschka, AlphaGo chronicles a journey from the halls of Oxford, through the backstreets of Bordeaux, past the coding terminals of Google DeepMind in London, and ultimately, to the seven-day tournament in Seoul. As the drama unfolds, more questions emerge: What can artificial intelligence reveal about a 3000-year-old game? What can it teach us about humanity?
