In the film world, Walter Murch is undeniably successful. The three-time Academy Award winner is world-renowned for his work on films like Apocalypse NowThe Godfather trilogy, and The English Patient. But this is only one aspect of his multifaceted interests. As an amateur astrophysicist, Murch has worked to rehabilitate a long-discredited 18th century theory called Titius Bode, which considers how planets and moons array themselves in gravitational systems across the universe. As an outsider in the science world, Murch has had a hard time attracting any sort of comprehensive agreement from professional astrophysicists, though many find his advances intriguing. Pulitzer Prize-nominated writer Lawrence Weschler brings Murch’s quest alive in all its seemingly quixotic, yet plausible, splendor. Appearing together, the two will discuss sound effects, science, and the mysteries of the universe.
