Filmmaker Erin Espelie will visit Hamilton to present The Lanthanide Series (2014), on Sunday, April 17, at 2 p.m., in the Bradford Auditorium, KJ. The film is part of the spring F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series and is free and open to the public.
After years working as an editor of Natural History magazine, Espelie turned to filmmaking and made a series of short films before completing The Lanthanide Series, her first feature film.
Structured around the rare earth elements on the periodic table, The Lanthanide Series is equal parts science, poetry, history, cinema and environmental politics as it explores how these elements are deeply and inextricably woven into the fabric of our everyday lives.
The spring F.I.L.M. series concludes on Sunday, April 24, when director Scott MacDonald presents “Music and Cinema.”
