"Unites physics and metaphysics in an ingenious guerrilla reinvention of cinematic science fiction"
—The Village Voice

CUNY College of Staten Island professor and Hayden Planetarium astrophysicist Charles Liu will be our guide through the ethical, psychological and apocalyptic ramifications of one the knottiest time travel loops in cinematic history. Carruth's (Upstream Color) micro-budget, Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning first feature follows two wonky physics engineers who accidentally hit upon a method of time travel.
