|Venue:||3280 South Miami Avenue, Miami, FL 33129|
Guests will be treated to a video fly-through of the new Museum facility inside the theater to kick off the evening. In partnership with the Borscht Film Festival, the event will continue with the Miami premiere of filmmaker Bernardo Britto's animated short film, "Yearbook," a 2014 Sundance Grand Jury Prize for Animation. This six-minute film follows the story of a man hired to compile the definitive history of human existence before the impending demise of the planet. Following the film, Caroline Simpson, Ph.D., associate professor at Florida International University, will give a brief talk on exoplanets research, followed by an informal Q&A.
Guests will then have the chance to observe the night sky on the rooftop observatory before heading into the Planetarium to enjoy live music provided by local musicians Rob Goyanes and Brad Lovett, who specialize in combining punk, electronica, and rhythm into unique and fresh soundscapes. The music will be accompanied by live improvisational dome projections provided by Miami artists Sri Prabha and Nayib Estefan, who synthesize science and engineering and the senses into art.
