The premiere will be initiated by an interdisciplinary program in the afternoon. You are all cordially invited at 15:30 clock to come to the studio of the ACUD MACHT NEU in Prenzlauer Berg and tune in with Chai and Namkeen on India! After a welcome note by Prof. Dr. Michael Schneider, Dr. Viviana Re from the University of Pisa gives a lecture on socio-hydrogeology, a topic she has been researching for years and which is becoming increasingly important within hydrogeology.
Afterwards, a small panel discussion will shed light on how film can serve as a bridge builder between science and society. Before the premiere starts, there will be delicious Indian food for you all!
As Katalin Ambrus and the Indian project assistant Mohsin Khan (if his visa will be approved) will also be present, you will have the great opportunity to ask all your questions in Q&A sessions after the films!
Please let us know, if you are planning to participate!
Looking forward to see you all!
