|Welcome & Introduction
|Christer Fuglesang, Director KTH Space Center and Carl-Mikael Zetterling
|Special screening of Tangent Room (66 min)
Tangent Room is an English-language science fiction feature film made in Sweden. It is set in a single room, where four scientists are trapped and given a series of numbers as their only clue to how they can escape alive.
The film explores the limits of human knowledge in the form of a thriller. Many scientific theories in the film are based on published articles and speculative scientific research papers, but the film also takes the liberty of stretching imagination far into the unknown. For those with knowledge about physics and the cosmos, there are hints of humor that only they will understand.
|The making of Tangent Room
Following the screening of the film, writer-director Björn Engström will talk about how to make a low budget film using very limited resources, how the idea came to him so clearly that he wrote the screenplay in only three weeks, and how making the film gave him a clear vision of the kinds of stories he wants to tell. Hopefully the film will also inspire initiated questions and discussions with the audience.
