Short films that experiment with science storytelling
There is perhaps no part of the human body more maligned than fat. This short film challenges us to rethink fat by explaining why we have it, how it works, and how it may make us sick. It turns out cutting edge science is uncovering the wonders of fat, and it’s time the rest of us gave it a second look.
What does it mean to be a scientific hero? That provocative question is at the heart of the strange-but-true story of the discovery of insulin in the early 1920s. This film reveals how the paths to revolutionary scientific discoveries are almost always more complicated and interesting than history describes.
