We are excited to host the 2019 WEP Film Festival, where renowned scientists will introduce and lead discussions for a range of educational documentaries and fictional film screenings related to this year’s theme ‘TIME’.
This Australian documentary, narrated by Rachel Ward, centres on how contemporary geology has potentially led to a new understanding of how life on Earth came to be.
We encourage festivalgoers to stay for the post-film discussion led by renown experts.
Brought to you by the University Library, Community Life and the Office of Enrichment Programs.
We value your feedback and welcome any comments you may have to help us improve our programs. Make sure you submit the survey after you have attended this event!
