Rafael screens ‘Her’; local ‘Millennials Talk Cinema’ critics to appear on panel

Her posterArgus-Courier’s film-loving “Millennials” on stage for live screening: Three of the four local film reviewers responsible for the Argus- Courier’s weekly “Millennials Talk Cinema” columns will take to the stage on Feb. 13, at 7 p.m., for a (no doubt) lively post-film conversation following a screening of the science-fiction film “Her,” starring Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams and Scarlett Johansson. The event, to be held at Marin County’s Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center, is part of the nonprofit’s monthly Science on Screen series, featuring a science-related film followed by a post-film conversation with eloquent and entertaining folks who have some connection (or at least some strong opinions) about the themes of the film. The event has been titled “The Future of Sex: Love and Relationships in the Age of AI,” which pretty much fits the 2013 Spike Jones hit about a lonely writer who falls hard for his new Alexa-like operating system. Appearing will be Amber-Rose Reed, Katie Wigglesworth and Alexa Chipman. The evening will be hosted by Argus-Courier Community Editor David Templeton (co-founder of North Bay Stage and Screen), who began hosting the 2020 series last month with a screening of the 1997 drama “Contact,” and a conversation with acclaimed science educator Eugenie Scott.
