Vu ce soir Downsizing, et même si l'idée est totalement invraisemblable (on sait que la diminution de taille possède des effets proportionnels à la taille, d'autres au carré de la taille (surfaces), d'autres au cube de la taille (volumes) et que les différents équilibres du corps humain portent sur les trois échelles), si d'autre part l'idée de la cohabitation des humains non réduits avec les réduits provoquerait des luttes beaucoup plus virulentes que la seule réaction d'un ivrogne dans le film, le sujet principal, c.a.d. comment le héros qui vivait dans sa bulle d'ignorance prend progressivement conscience de certaines réalités, est fort bien présenté et bien joué. C'est un film qui incite à réfléchir, donc un vrai film de SF.

Ciné-Club IHP

Edition 2018 Le ciné-club reprend pour cette nouvelle année, de janvier à juin, le dernier mardi de chaque mois. Découvrez la nouvelle formule et la programmation 2018 !
Cette année, chaque séance est parrainée par une personnalité scientifique de renom, qui participe à la sélection du film et des intervenants spécialisés. Dans le cadre de sa mission de diffusion de la culture mathématique auprès du grand public, l’Institut Henri Poincaré propose son Ciné Club Univers Convergents ; Sciences, Fictions, Société en partenariat avec le cinéma Grand Action (Paris 5) et le magazine Sciences et Avenir, de janvier à juin 2018, le dernier mardi de chaque mois. Le cycle compte 6 projections suivies chacune d’un débat avec des intervenants spécialistes. Ces projections s’adressent à un large public, qui n’a pas besoin d’être férus de mathématiques pour venir assister aux séances. Les questions sociales, sociétales et éthiques liées au sciences feront l’objet d’échanges entre les intervenants et le public. Univers Convergents ; Sciences, Fictions et Société; quand 3 univers se rencontrent, s’interrogent et deviennent prétexte au dialogue entre scientifiques et grand public. Cet événement est une nouvelle façon de rappeler les liens qui unissent les mathématiques aux autres disciplines scientifiques, tout en s’interrogeant sur certains enjeux et rêves associés à la science dans notre monde. Telecharger Découvrez le programme de l'édition 2018 Les inscriptions se font en ligne uniquement, via le formulaire de réservation. Pour la séance du 30 janvier 2018, les inscriptions ouvriront le mardi 16 janvier 2018 à 10h. Informations pratiques : Cinéma Grand Action, 5, Rue des Écoles, 75005 Paris.
