MoMath goes to the movies!  Each month, MoMath’s Distinguished Visiting Professor Ingrid Daubechies will host an hour of discussion about movies that have a connection to mathematics, either in their content or their creation.  Each month you’ll watch the featured film at your convenience, then join Ingrid and her special guests, who will take us deeper into the making of the film and the math behind it.
