LOSING CONTROL Film Screening at UC Santa Barbara

Thursday, October 6, 2011  7:00pm - 9:00pm

Pollock Theater, UCSB

Free Public Film Screening and Reception

LOSING CONTROL is a fresh and funny indie comedy about a female scientist who applies scientific principles to the art of finding love. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the film’s BAFTA Award-winning writer/director, Valerie Weiss, and the film’s lead actor, Miranda Kent.

Find out how a biophysicist got the Pentagon to pay for film school, brought her passion to life on the big screen, and acquired distribution for her film!

*Includes a post-event reception with coffee and scientifically-delicious bakery treats*

Seating is limited to 300, and is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Take a peek at and see why science isn’t just for men and this film isn’t just for women!

This event is sponsored by the Neuroscience Research Institute, the Professional Artists Lab, STAGE @ CNSI, the Department of Film and Media Studies, and the Carsey-Wolf Center.
