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.

WATCH the nationwide Science on Screen IN SILICO Q&A. Moderated by Radiolabs Molly Webster, the panelists are:
  • IN SILICO writer/director Noah Sutton
  • Filmmaker Werner Herzog, whose work addresses similar themes
