Special Q&A with IQC Executive Director Raymond Laflamme on December 15

The personal journey through the life of physicist Stephen Hawking, as told in his voice through the documentary “Hawking: The Remarkable Story of a Beautiful Mind”, is coming to Waterloo’s Princess Cinemas next month from December 13-17.

The Institute for Quantum Computing’s executive director, Raymond Laflamme, is a former student of Stephen Hawking. Laflamme and physicist Don Page are responsible for having changed Hawking's mind on the direction of time in a contracting Universe, as described in Hawking’s best-seller "A Brief History of Time". Laflamme will host a special question and answer period following the screening of Hawking on Sunday, December 15 at 5:00 p.m.

The five screenings of “Hawking” are a special co-presentation by the Institute for Quantum Computing, the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and Princess Cinemas.
