About this event
Event lasts 3 hours
Date: Wednesday, July 24th

Venue: Fort Greene Park

Address: Myrtle Ave & N Portland Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11205

7:00 PM: Lawn Opens

8:45 PM: Film Begins

10:00 PM: Q&A with filmmaker Michael Gitlin

10:15 PM: Science on Screen® Presentation

Join us in Fort Greene Park for a screening of the new documentary from acclaimed filmmaker Michael Gitlin profiling the lives, histories, and shifting scholarship around moths and their significance to our world! After the screening, we’ll invite the audience to participate in a mothing demonstration—co-presented by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation’s Science on Screen® initiative—using a sheet and ultraviolet light to attract and interact with some of the wildlife in Fort Greene Park!

THE FILM

The Night Visitors

Michael Gitlin | US | 72 mins

The Night Visitors is a movie about moths. In large and small fragments, looking both inward and out, through a critical lens that is by turns social and personal, the film closely considers these underknown creatures. While The Night Visitors is interested in moths as organisms, with fascinating life histories, staggering biodiversity, and a functional importance as indicators of climate change and habitat degradation, its engagement with them is not primarily entomological. Instead, the film looks at moths as aesthetic beings and as carriers of meaning, aiming for a deep encounter with the beauty and incommensurability of the profoundly other. The small hours of the night are threaded through with a sense of mortality and loss. Moths, with their trembling and exquisite impermanence, provide both a kind of solace and, in their diversity and difference, a focal point around which the desire to know can be organized. Presented in Partnership with the Fort Greene Park Conservancy and NYC Council Member Crystal Hudson.

On Nov. 16, 2022, Blackwell-Thompson led her team during the first launch of Artemis – and uncrewed flight test of SLS and the Orion spacecraft. She is now preparing for Artemis II, the first crewed Artemis mission. Named to the position in January 2016, Blackwell-Thompson is NASA’s first female launch director.

Her role includes leading and managing the launch operations planning and execution for the Exploration Ground Systems program and Exploration Systems Development Division, or ESD.

Moderator:

Mike Massimino is a New York Times bestselling author who served as a NASA Astronaut from 1996 to 2014. He is a four-time spacewalker who completed two missions to the Hubble Space Telescope, including the final Hubble servicing mission which has been called the most dangerous and complex mission in space shuttle history. Mike set a team record with his crewmates for the most cumulative spacewalking time in a single space shuttle mission, and he was also the first person to tweet from space. Mike received his BS from Columbia University and his PhD from MIT. He currently lives in New York City where he is a professor at Columbia, Senior Space Advisor at the Intrepid Museum, an expert television commentator, and an in-demand keynote speaker.

ABOUT LOUD:
Drew Afualo is best known as the internet’s “Crusader for Women” and is at the head of a new generation of entertainment’s rising stars. Loud is part manual, part manifesto, and part memoir. It makes it clear that behind her fearsome laugh is a mission and a life philosophy, a strategy for self-confidence from the inside out, and a pathway to once and for all remove men from the center of how women and femmes think about themselves.

Afualo has amassed more than nine million followers across her social platforms. When she first started creating content in 2020, she realized that men on Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and other apps were creating sexist content aimed at disparaging women, and also containing rampant fatphobia, racism, and other forms of bigotry, with very real-life consequences. It didn’t take long for her to step into the role of unofficial watchdog for misogyny, and her signature laugh is now recognized as a feminist call to arms, a summoning cry to rid the internet (and our hearts, minds, and lives) of “terrible men” and create a space to fight outdated patriarchal ideals.

ABOUT Drew Afualo:

Drew Afualo is a content creator and women’s rights advocate. Her writing has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, and she has been profiled in The New York Times, Nylon, and Rolling Stone. She was named Adweek’s 2022 Digital & Tech Creator of the Year, Meta’s Creator of Tomorrow, and one of Time magazine’s Next Generation Leaders. Afualo has covered the red carpet at the Academy Awards and hosts the Spotify Exclusive podcast The Comment Section. Loud is her first book.

J.G. Ballard’s Crash meets Albert Camus’s The Plague in a transgressive horror novel for the TikTok generation.

Will is a fraud. Olivia is a wreck. They meet at a grief share group and quickly bond over their brokenness. They also have a peculiar hobby; they seek out sickness. Will hunts for the latest strain of flu. Olivia doesn’t feel comfortable in her body if she isn’t suffering from a fever. They become virus chasers, finding confidence in their ability to conquer every affliction they come across.

They soon discover an online community of chasers called The Source and realize that their hobby isn’t all that odd when seen from the right distance. And then the mysterious Zaff literally walks into their life, claiming that he has the goods, knows where the latest outbreak will drop. Intrigued, Will and Olivia decide to take their hobby to the point of obsession, believing that if they can conquer the newest strain, nobody can hurt them.

Michael J. Seidlinger is the Filipino American author of The Body Harvest, Anybody Home?, Tekken 5 (Boss Fight Books) and other books. He has written for, among others, Wired, Buzzfeed, Polygon, The Believer, and Publishers Weekly.

Non-invasive and minimally invasive BCI: Application-driven technology.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) with separate sessions devoted to image-guided personalization, coil design for depth and targeting, and accelerating clinical responses.
Dramatic advances in restorative neurotechnology: The future is now.
Connectomic neuromodulation: Advanced patient imaging to circuit therapeutics
New cognitive neuroscience: Inferring causality from brain stimulation.
Special technical track: Advanced tools in computational model driven design from image-derived models, scale and speed, and predicting neuronal/networks responses.
Special technical track: Approaches to closed-loop neurostimulation from hardware, to software, to clinical paradigms.
This year, the NYC Neuromodulation Conference “gets personal” in four ways:

– Grand theme across technical sessions: Optimized interventions are personalized interventions.

– Extensive networking opportunities spanning poster sessions, on/off-site social events, funder and investor panels, and new investigators opportunities.

– Utmost focus on attendee experience includes complimentary drinks and meals (breakfasts, lunches, opening receptions), work and networking conducive environments, online and in-person attendee services.

– Unmatched opportunities to promote your work including day-long poster sessions, Abstract online enhanced content, Abstract publication, and featured Abstract oral presentations on main stage.
