Starring Math

Friday, September 23 at 7:00 pm ET (New York)


Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Tim Chartier and special guests Seth Caplan and Dano Johnson for a discussion of Flatland.  Based on Edwin Abbott's 1884 science fiction novella, Flatland brings us into a society of two-dimensional beings — sentient squares, circles, triangles, and other shapes, none of whom can conceive of a universe that is anything but perfectly flat.  That is, until one day, when a heretical young hexagon named Hex dares to dream of a third dimension, and she and her grandfather Arthur Square embark on a trans-dimensional journey into the wildest reaches of geometry.

Seth Caplan is an award-winning independent producer and filmmaker.  His live features, animations, and documentaries have been shown at many film festivals, including Sundance, Tribeca, and SXSW.

Dano Johnson is a director whose animated ads, music videos, and short films have won numerous awards and played at 50 film festivals.

Please watch Flatland at your leisure in the days leading up to the event.

Though viewing the film is not required for participation, it is suggested that participants stream the movie independently prior to the event.

Please note that this is an online-only event; all registrants will be participating remotely.  Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at
