SUNSHINE – SARDA CINETECA – CAGLIARI – FRIDAY NOVEMBER 30
Fourth round of the sci-fi film festival Free GENES AND THE STARS, the work of the students of the Master in Science Communication.
Achieved through the sharing of the Master in Science Communication at the University of Cagliari, Sardinia Cinematheque and Centre Cultural Services of the Humane Society of Cagliari, this week will bring to the big screen in Viale Trieste 118-126, the film by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting and 127 hours).
We un’ant … icipazione proposing a review of Andrea Serra, a graduate of the Master in Science Communication.
The Sun burns 600 million tons of hydrogen per second with this consumption can not last forever. Scientists believe it has enough energy for another 5 billion years. And if it were not so?
The real protagonist of this story, and no doubt our star ‘mother’, the Sun The film contains a lot of special effects and images in computer graphics for the realization of which were needed 16 months of post-production. The truthfulness and correctness of the scientific director seem manic Boyle did live for a few days the actors closely with researchers at CERN in Geneva, led them to visit a nuclear submarine to understand how to move and live in tight spaces, and caused him to experience the feeling of being in zero gravity through a flight in an airplane that simulates this condition. Thanks to this film production designer Mark Tildesley won the British Independent Film Awards 2007 for Best Technical Contribution.

We could put it in the category ‘film possibilistic-Futurists’, although some remain ‘poetic license’ which also consultancy Scientific and you had to bend by order of the director. Something, however, escaped this quest for perfection. Many aspects psi-cologici of the journey undertaken by the spacecraft, a spiritual path towards the source and sustenance of human life, which raises questions about the possibility of ethical and moral nature-change the course of the events. In this film you look at the human being, with all its strengths and weaknesses: the guilt, cowardice, fear, aggression. Sa-crifichereste who you and close, someone you love, for the good of humanity whole?
Remains good until the rails of science fiction (although scientifically plausible) classical disappoint with a segment in the pre-final thriller / horror to Alien (1979), acquiring all the worst cliches. In-teressante the closing sequence, in which the physical and sees ‘touches’ the priming of the chain reaction that will give new impetus all’inscindibile binomial Sun-life. The director here plays with space / time, because this is-nuclear fusion reaction is actually in a billionth of a second. That contact does not only understand the attraction almost morbid scientist for his subject matter, but also creates a con-tact between what we are today and the moment just after the Big Bang that gave birth to the Universe, about 13.7 billion years ago. A poetic image to great effect on cyclicity of events.
