Movie Screening: The Fly Room

Mon, Mar 12, 2018, 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm

PDC would like to invite you to the screening of “The Fly Room” a film by Alexis Gambis. The movie will be followed by a post-screening conversation with the Film Director Alexis Gambis and with Erika Kiss, who is the director of the Film Forum at Princeton University.

“The Fly Room” explores the true story of the relationship between a 10-year old daughter (Betsey) and her brilliant, troubled father (Calvin Bridges), who was a scientist working in the famous fly room, the Lab of Thomas Hunt Morgan at Columbia University where most of the fundamental laws of modern genetics were discovered in the 1920s.

The trailer and more information about the film and its director can be found here:
