Given two years to live following the diagnosis of a fatal illness, Stephen Hawking defied all odds and became one of the world’s most successful theoretical physicists. This superbly acted film – adapted from Stephen’s first wife, Jane Hawking’s memoir, Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen – shows the highs and lows of their relationship; from falling in love, to Stephen’s physical deterioration and academic fame, while remaining ever hopeful in the face of adversity.
This film will be introduced by Professor of Neurology, Orla Hardiman, from the Trinity Biomedical Science Institute (TBSI).
SCIENCE GALLERY’S INNOVATION WORKSHOP
IFI Education and Science Gallery Dublin are teaming up to present this special screening of The Theory of Everything at the IFI.
