Secret Science Club presents a special screening of "The Creeping Garden," one of the coolest & trippiest indie documentaries out there. PLUS Swarm Scientist Simon Garnier gets this cinema party started with a mini-lecture on some surprisingly smart life-forms.

BEFORE & AFTER: Sunday afternoon cocktails, delicious bites, and door prizes!

THE CREEPING GARDEN is a real-life sci-fi movie, exploring the extraordinary world of plasmodial slime mold as revealed through the eyes of scientists and startling time-lapse macro-cinematography. A movie about slime mold? You betcha! These curious organisms are the new stars of biologically inspired art & design, emergence theory, computing, and robot engineering. THE CREEPING GARDEN is a “cinematic cabinet of curiosities that will leave you giddy and delirious with wonder.”
