Join Fields Medalist Manjul Bhargava and up-and-coming director Matt Brown in a conversation, including several pre-release movie clips, about the content and making of the new Hollywood film on Ramanujan, The Man Who Knew Infinity. Though he never received a formal education in the subject, Ramanujan's work has had a truly transformative effect on modern mathematics. Even today, as we delve further into lines from his letters and notebooks, Ramanujan's ideas continue to fundamentally change the field, and have even influenced Manjul's own work. Don't miss this one-of-a-kind event as a new and acclaimed film director describes how he brought these ideas to life on the big screen, then listen and learn as a mathematical thought leader of today shares insights about the more accessible ideas of one of history's most stunning mathematical minds. Chat with Manjul, Matt, and other math and film fans at a reception following the talk, sponsored by a generous MoMath supporter.
