New People - Visual science dissemination

Project Details

Description

Artistic development into the DNA research environment. A poetic visual storytelling as entrance to research dissemination. The overall focus is imagination and storytelling as catalyst for human as moving beings.

SCREENINGS:
A research team led by Eske Willerslev sequenced the genome of a 4,000-year-old man from the Saqqaq culture of Greenland from his hair. This was the first ancient human genome to be sequenced. With a story from Knud Rasmussens expeditions to Greenland, “New People” as the striking of the theme, we ask Eske Willerslev about his research in the field of DNA and human migration, humans force of imagination and what lead us to move.

First screening of New People at The National Museum of Denmark was followed by a dialog-session between Tor Nørretranders and Eske Willerslev. 21th of September 2019. Target group: Public.

Second screening took place at the Sci-Vi Conference during Viborg Animation Festival. Dialog-session: Tor Nørretranders and Cosimo Miorelli. 27th of September 2019. Taget group: Researchers and visual storytellers.

Third screening took place during Nuuk Nordisk Kultur Festival 8th of October 2019, Nuuk. Dialog-session: Film director Steen Rasmussen, Sia Søndergaard and children of the future. Target group: Public, children and young people.
