Selected for SCINEMA 2018 Community Program

Boris Wilmart (France)

Isolated from civilisation in the Atacama Desert, an astronomer uses one of the largest telescopes in the world to try to answer questions that humanity has been asking for centuries.


Founded in 2000, SCINEMA is the largest science film festival in the southern hemisphere celebrating the power of moving image to explain the wonders of science.

It combines SCINEMA International Science Film Festival and SCINEMA Community Program.

The Festival premieres across Australia in June each year and showcases the best science film from around the world.

SCINEMA Community Program takes place in Australia during National Science Week in August.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
