cinema lecture movie

Come see this iconic zombie film and learn more about whether the zombie apocalypse could really be upon us in the near future. The lecture will be given by Aleš Kvasnička, a scientist working at the Laboratory of Inherited Metabolic Disorders, UP and FNOL Olomouc.

The last man on Earth is not alone. Will Smith as a survivor. I Am Legend - an epic, action-packed adventure filled with disturbing shots of a depopulated Manhattan. Military virologist Robert Neville (Smith) is inexplicably immune to an unstoppable and incurable virus that has afflicted the people of New York, perhaps the world. The mutated victims of an unknown plague lurk in the shadows, watching Neville's every move. Waiting for him to make a fatal mistake. Neville is driven by one goal - to make a cure from his own blood, and time is working against him.

The Science in Film series of film screenings and lectures is organized in collaboration with the student association UPCROWD of Palacký University.
