When: Tuesday, April 24 – 7:00 p.m. (film screening)
Followed by a Q & A with writer Paolo Giordano
Where: MIT 32-155 – Cambridge MA [map]MIT will feature a screening of widely acclaimed Italian film “Solitude of Prime Numbers,” based on the bestselling first novel Paolo Giordano wrote while working on a doctorate in particle physics.
Directed by Saverio Costanzo, it was nominated for the 2010 Venice International Film Festival Golden Lion.
Like prime numbers, “suspicious, solitary numbers,” which are divisible only by the number one and by themselves and are forever separated by even numbers, the two young protagonists are drawn together and pulled apart by their emotions and wounds. An extremely well told story about the difficulty of becoming “two.”
