Based on a book by Sebastian Junger, The Perfect Storm follows the crew of a fishing boat who braves devastating weather conditions in an effort to make it home. Nominated for two Academy Awards, it is a story of hubris and heroism on the high seas, one that provides a stirring reminder of the power of the ocean.
Future Tense will be screening The Perfect Storm on Tuesday, July 28, at 6:30 p.m. at Washington, D.C.'s Landmark E Street Cinema at 555 11th Street NW. Our host for the evening will be Dr. Kathryn Sullivan, under secretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration administrator, and former astronaut. Dr. Sullivan's research has encompassed biological, oceanographic, and climatological topics.
