Join Future Tense and Charles “Chick” Macal, distinguished fellow and senior systems engineer at Argonne National Laboratory, on Tuesday, Jan. 23, in Washington, D.C., for a screening and discussion of the 2013 movie World War Z.

The film follows a former United Nations worker as he races to cure a zombie pandemic that is tearing apart the world order and threatening humanity’s existence.

The event will be followed by a brief Q-and-A between Macal and Victoria Jaggard, senior science editor at National Geographic Partners.

This latest installment of Future Tense’s “My Favorite Movie” series will take place at 6:30 p.m. at Landmark E Street Cinema at 555 11th Street NW. The event is free and open to the public. You may RSVP for yourself and up to one guest.
