Film Festival: Adventures of a Mathematician

April 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Adventures of a Mathematician

In this tantalizing account of the top-secret Manhattan Project, brilliant Polish-Jewish scientist Stan Ulam struggles with wartime loss and prophetic moral dilemmas at the dawn of the nuclear age. After Ulam and his brother escape Poland on the eve of the Nazi invasion, Ulam's knowledge of mathematics makes him a valuable recruit to a legendary team of European physicists at Los Alamos who are working to develop the atomic bomb. Ulam struggles with moral conflicts about his contributions to nuclear weaponry and is haunted by the fate of the family he left behind in Poland. Adapted from Ulam’s autobiography, this untold immigrant story delivers a fascinating glimpse into one of the greatest scientific minds of the 20th century.
