The Fly Room Screening

A Hollywood take on the life of a scientist

Geneticist-turned-filmmaker Alexis Gambis has spent the last 10 years creating ‘The Fly Room’ - a fictional drama based on the life, work and eccentricities of the famed geneticist Calvin Bridges.

The movie is far from a dry account of scientific facts; it is a story of pioneering discoveries portrayed from the whimsical perspective of a 10-year old girl who frequents her father’s lab during early 1920s.
