Film Screening: "Agora" by Alejandro Amenabar(More about event)
"Agora" is a 2009 historical drama directed by Alejandro Amenábar about the Alexandrian Neoplatonist and mathematician Hypatia in late 4th, early 5th-century Roman Egypt. Surrounded by religious turmoil and social unrest, Hypatia struggles to save the knowledge of classical antiquity from destruction. As a prominent intellectual leader in Alexandria, she incurs the envy and wrath of the city’s Bishop Cyril. She was murdered, apparently by a Christian mob, almost 1600 years ago, in the year 415.
