Details:Museum of the Moving Image's Science on Screen series presents “Proceed with Caution,” showcasing acclaimed sci-fi thrillers and adventures framed by introductions from scientists and public health experts on the front lines of research. All events take place at the Queens Drive-In.

“Proceed with Caution” pairs hit films with four key themes—pandemic preparedness, isolation, vaccine development, and zoonotic spillover and climate change—central to the COVID-19 pandemic that warrant attention, asking what we still have to watch out for, and how we can best take care. The sci-fi films featured are escapist, big-screen experiences that also acknowledge in uncanny ways the reality of the pandemic. The series brings public health experts (leading epidemiologists, a specialist in the effects of isolation on the brain, the 50th woman in space, a field scientist who studies diseases in bats) into direct conversation with audiences, offering a chance for collective catharsis through acknowledgment of present circumstances and some cautious optimism about how we might proceed.

In addition to feature films, “Proceed with Caution” presents a number of short films that address public health and received grants from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for their portrayal of scientific themes. This includes The Ball Method, inspired by the true story of African-American chemist Alice Ball who found an effective treatment for leprosy in 1915 when she was 23 years old.

In partnership with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the screenings will be offered at a reduced ticket price of $20 per car and will also include a free screening on May 13, in an effort to continue one of the Drive-In's core missions of providing access to the community.
