About the film:

Winner of Academy Awards for Cinematography, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, and Visual Effects. Immerse yourself in the world of the dream with a 10th anniversary 70mm print of Christopher Nolan’s monumental sci-fi thriller complete with Hans Zimmer’s iconic thundering score.

Dom Cobb’s skill at stealing information from his target’s subconscious has made him a hot commodity in the world of corporate espionage. After losing everything he loves, Cobb gets a chance at redemption when he is offered the seemingly impossible task of planting an idea in someone’s mind. If his team succeeds, it will be the perfect crime, but a dangerous enemy anticipates his every move.

About the filmmaker:

Writer-director Christopher Nolan is known for his intriguing and nonlinear brand of storytelling. His critically acclaimed films include Memento and The Dark Knight Trilogy, and he continued to push the boundaries of filmmaking with his compelling engineering of stories inspired by real scientific concepts in The PrestigeInception, Interstellar, and Tenet.

While he shared the writing credit on most of his films, Nolan was the sole screenwriter for Inception as well as his 1999 directorial debut The Following, his 2017 masterpiece Dunkirk, and his latest sci-fi thriller Tenet, which will screen as part of Science on Screen in July.
