EVENT: Atlanta European Science Café

Join us for one of our last events before the holidays as we co-host the Atlanta European Science Café with a screening of “Sleepless in New York.”

Sleepless in New York

The Consulate General of Switzerland in Atlanta and the Atlanta European Science Café present a screening of “Sleepless in New York” with a discussion facilitated by Biological Anthropologist Helen Fisher.

A little about the film:

“Sleepless in New York” is a film directed by Christian Frei from Switzerland. Paralyzing, tormenting and overwhelming, often laughed off as nothing more than an affliction of adolescence, lovesickness becomes the topic of a documentary film. The director and his cinematographer dive into the frenzied nights of the newly rejected. Nights full of pain and tears, yet also wakefulness and creativity.

Anthropologist Helen Fisher researches the astounding and profound processes that are unfolding in the brain of the lovesick. Has nature overdone it? The film explores the difficult path out of self-destructive obsessive behavior, toward a new self.

A little about the speaker:

Helen Fisher, PhD Biological Anthropologist, is a Senior Research Fellow, The Kinsey Institute, member of the Center for Human Evolutionary Studies in the Department of Anthropology, Rutgers University and Chief Scientific Advisor to the Internet dating site Match.com. She has conducted extensive research and written five books on the evolution and future of human sex, love, marriage, gender differences in the brain and how your personality style shapes who you are and who you love.
