1hr 28mins // directed by:Stanley Kubrick // featuring:Kirk Douglas, Ralph Meeker

As part of our national evening of Science on Screen involving independent cinemas in 17 cities across the country, we are proud to present Stanley Kubrick’s Paths of Glory, one of the greatest antiwar films of all time.

Experimental psychologist Steven Pinker – our inaugural Science on Screen speaker in 2005 – joins us before the film to discuss violence, human nature, and why – as implausible as it may sound – we may be living in the most peaceable, least violent and least cruel era in human existence.
