One night only (March 31), “Sizzle“, advertised as a global warming comedy will be at the Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway at 7 p.m., with writer/director Randy Olson in person. Dr. Olson is a Harvard educated Ph.D. in marine biology, who has turned into a filmmaker, whose previous film was the 2006 “A Flock of Dodos.”
“Sizzle” is a “unique hybrid of three genres — mockumentary, documentary and reality — that Variety called, “an exceedingly clever vehicle for making science engaging to a general audience.” It is the only U.S. movie that presents both sides of the global warming issue, and is more timely than ever given the rocky waters the global warming movement has recently hit.”
Copies of Dr. Randy Olson‘s new book, “Don’t Be Such a Scientist: Talking Substance in an Age of Style,” will also be available for sale and signing at this event.
UA faculty and Dr. Olson will do a Q & A after the film. He will be joined by UA climate scientists Julia Cole and Diana Liverman, biologist Lisa Graumlich, and journalism professor Jacqueline Sharkey.
