IN SILICO – Presented with Coolidge Corner Theater // Science on Screen
SCREENS APRIL 30 – MAY 22
Director: Noah Hutton | Feature Documentary | 83 minutes
A young filmmaker sets out to document a brilliant neuroscientist who has become frustrated with his field’s status quo. With time elapsing and millions of dollars on the line, In Silico explores an audacious 10-year quest to simulate the entire human brain on supercomputers. Along the way, it reveals the profound beauty of tiny mistakes and bold predictions — a controversial space where scientific process meets ego, and where the lines between objectivity and ambition blur.
