Science on Screen

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

Our Science On Screen® title for July is this sly and uproariously funny cultural satire from writer-director Larry Cohen (Q, IT’S ALIVE). When a mysteriously delicious custard-like substance is found in the Arctic, it is marketed as a frozen dessert. It becomes wildly popular and is in fact addictive, and, also, as is later discovered, a threat to life on Earth. We will be joined by a food scientist for a discussion about food additives, their effects, and the process by which they are labeled and approved.

Science on Screen® is an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre with major support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
