C2ST is pleased to present this event as part of our Science + Cinema initiative.
We go behind-the-scenes of the WTTW series Urban Nature with its producer and host, as well as one of the scientists featured in a segment filmed right here in Chicago.
We will screen segments from the series, which explores the surprising ways in which nature is thriving in Chicago, New York, and San Francisco. Then producer Dan Protess and host Marcus Kronforst will discuss the making of the series, and explore Kronforst’s work as an evolutionary biologist at the University of Chicago. Scientist Joel Brown will disucss his role in Urban Nature, and what it was like to be a part of the show. Q and A to follow.
