MAY 2010

The Marina Experiment has won its eighth award, a trophy and cash prize of 2000 € from Curtocircuito International Short Film Festival in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. As a winner, it screened again in Santiago de Compostela for the Curtocircuito Na Rúa “Palmarés 2010” programme.

On June 8th, The Marina Experiment will be screened for a Lab on “Emotion, Memory, and The Brain” at The Center for Neural Science at NYU. The professor in charge, Joseph E. LeDoux, is a neuroscientist as well as a singer and guitarist in the science-themed rock band The Amygdaloids. They do covers of songs like “Manic Depression” and “19th Nervous Breakdown,” as well as original songs about brain disorders. The band has had many guest guitarists including Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith), Gary Lucas (Captain Beefheart) and Peter Holsapple (REM). He has recorded two duets with Rosanne Cash. Marina believes she will be addressing research scientists, scholars and visiting faculty from all over the world, as well as fellows, graduate and undergraduate students whose work is focused on how traumatic memories are formed, stored, and retrieved. Or maybe she will just be in a lab with a couple of scientists. The lab is particularly interested in how the brain learns and stores information about danger. Marina is pretty excited about this, and wonders if they might use her as a test subject in some of their research.

In November, she is scheduled to speak at Bryn Mawr, a women’s liberal arts college in Pennsylvania that was founded by the Quakers. This screening is for a course called “Identification in the Cinema” about the ways that the self is defined in and through images.
