BIL L.A. 2018 is proud to present a special digital theatrical presentation of:

Humanity Needs Dreamers: A Visit With Marie Curie Film
Saturday, June 24th from 8 - 9pm. Film screening starts at 8:15
.....................

"Everything a science film should be." - Lisa Randall, Harvard University

Two-time Nobel Prize winner Marie Skłodowska Curie is best known for pioneering the field of radioactivity — but few understand the obstacles she faced just to enter the laboratory.

What if she could tell her story?

This acclaimed & intimate portrayal of one of the most famous names in science was the 2017 Raw Science Film Festival's winner of the professional dramatic category. The film is produced by STEM on Stage and directed by Jen Myronuk, a member & past attendee of the BIL community, and is written & performed by Susan Marie Frontczak, a former engineer & science scholar. humanityneedsdreamers.org

Entertaining, engaging and informative - take part in this unique & scholarly time travel experience. Seating is limited.

Bryce Hidysmith presents a riveting talk on the insanities in post-modernism - "Everything is true (to someone)... Nothing is permitted" - and a reasonable alternative: truth is a function of communication. Did you all get that? #bilsf

We're thrilled to announce that the videos from the Los Angeles BIL Conference are live and posted to our BILtalks YouTube channel!

The videos are separated into playlists for easy viewing.
https://www.youtube.com/user/BILtalks/playlists

This year we faced some unexpected difficulties which, we're sorry to say, effected the quality and raw volume of footage. Video is a sensitive production that if rushed can quickly limit the quality of the end result - even through post production.

We learned a lot, but something that will always be a floating variable is man power. Please keep that in mind for future BIL events, and if you have experience working a camera please keep an eye open for our posts looking for AV volunteers!

It boils down to 3 main issues - lack of setup time, lack of power, and lack of man power. The results include: lack of lighting, improper camera settings, overtaxing power, and missing footage due to lack of volunteers/ camera operators.

Most of you have heard of TED or watched the talks online, but do you know about BIL, the quirky, populist, unconference taking place nearby? Open to the pub...
