About this event
Over one hundred years ago, humans invented Cinema, the art of moving pictures, and we seem to really like it. Film and its descendants, whether coming at us through the screens of our TVs, computers, or mobile devices, have at this point completely reshaped the landscape of human cultures worldwide. Let's think about how our brains made Cinema, continue to shape it now, and how it shapes us in the present and in our possible futures.
TEDxCinemaLA: Movie Minds will bring together speakers from a broad spectrum of film arts, industry and critical backgrounds, with scientists working in evolutionary biology, cultural anthropology and neuroscience, to share their ideas worth spreading on these topics.
