SPECIAL SESSION: SCREENING OF MOVIES ABOUT MATHEMATICIANS
It is planned to have a special session with the exhibition of a one-hour
documentary film about a remarkable mathematician whose contributions were
recognized with a Fields Medal just a few years before her untimely death.
It is a joint production of The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute
(MSRI) and George Csicsery (Zala Films): ‘Secrets of the Surface - The
Mathematical Vision of Maryam Mirzakhani’. “The biographical film is about
Maryam Mirzakhani, a brilliant woman, and Muslim immigrant to the United
States who became a superstar in her field. The story of her life will be
complemented with sections about Mirzakhani’s mathematical contributions,
as explained by colleagues and illustrated with animated sequences.
Throughout, we will look for clues about the sources of Mirzakhani’s
insights and creativity." (http://www.zalafilms.com/secrets/)
