Science on Screen®
In Person: Jonathan Bird
In conjunction with CFI Education’s Environmental Youth Forum, which serves students daytimes from March 6 to 8, we are pleased to welcome explorer and filmmaker Jonathan Bird to the Rafael stage to share an evening of discovery, humor and incredible underwater footage.
Jonathan Bird’s Blue World, his underwater science adventure series, is in its fifth season, and it has won Emmys and Cine Golden Eagles. The show and accompanying webisodes have aired worldwide on networks such as PBS, Discovery Channel, National Geographic Channel, ABC and Syfy. His easy humor and amazing underwater photography make ocean science accessible to everyone from 6 to 60 (but why stop there). Bird trained as an electrical engineer, but when he started diving in 1988, he fell in love with the underwater world. He will screen and discuss several of his short films and share his current obsession with underwater caves. Program approximately 90 minutes.
Science on Screen is an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, in partnership with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
