Whispers of String Theory

by Ekaterina Eremenko (2017)

Synopsis: An international meeting of physicists working in the most challenging and abstract field. A good sports commentator can turn you into a fan, likewise we are drawn into this secluded world by the right people: scientists telling about their colleagues- brave, intimate, direct... in whispers.

The Discrete Charm of Geometry

by Ekaterina Eremenko (2015)

Synopsis: A team of mathematicians is working together on a big project. Excitement of discovery, hope and disappointment, competition and recognition are shown from an infinitely close distance. Scientists united by the idea of discretization, which, in short, means: constructing continuous objects from basic building blocks. Akin to the scientists' search for the right discretization of continuum, this film itself is composed of fragments - individual characters of different ages, temperaments and scientific approaches - which form a single continuous melody. The question of where the boundaries lie between mathematics and the lives of those who are involved in it and how much they are willing to sacrifice is as important as the search for precise scientific answers. A unique and unprecedented dive into the unknown world of mathematicians.

Colors of Math

by Ekaterina Eremenko (2012)

Synopsis: To most people math appears abstract, mysterious, complicated, inaccessible. But math is nothing but a different language to express the world. Math can be sensual. Math can be tasted, it smells, it creates sound and color. One can touch it – and be touched by it....
