Nobelity — Nine Nobel Laureates Signpost the Future


Know that question - "If you could have dinner with a famous person, who would it be?" The one where the guys say Elle MacPherson, and the girls opt for Nelson Mandela? In lieu of such fantasies we present Nobelity, a movie where you'll get to sit down with nine Nobel Laureates for 84 minutes of inspiring discussion. It features Nobel Laureates: Steven Weinberg, Jody Williams (ok, maybe not quite Elle, but she is the founder of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, which is way more impressive anyhow. Plus she is one of only 33 women nobel winners, when there have been 725 blokes), Ahmed Zewail, Rick Smalley, Wangari Maathai, Sir Joseph Rotblat, Dr. Harold Varmus, Desmond Tutu (hey, he's almost like Nelson Mandela's brother, so you haven't done too badly), and Amartya Sen. Filmed in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa, Nobelity combines the insights of some of the world's most intelligent and accomplished individuals with their first-person view of 50 years from now. (Several have passed away since they contributed to the film.) Communities can host screenings of the film and here is a list of the current locations doing so in the US. We can't voucher for the movie itself, but maybe one of our readers has seen and can review it. Or you check out the trailer. More at ::Nobelity
