Author:Conquest, Drake, Rockmore
Description: A 52-minute movie that shows the general public that the inside of the head of a mathematician is not such a scary place. There are interviews with Freeman Dyson, David Mumford, Ingrid Daubechies, Persi Diaconis, Michael Freedman, Fan Chung Graham, Kate Okikiolu, Jennifer Tour Chayes, Peter Sarnak, Steven Strogatz, and other mathematicians. The film is divided into nine sections: Doing the Math, Shape, Working, Number, Proof, Uncertainty, The Real World, Connections, and The Last Word. It's now available for distribution through Films in the Humanities and Sciences, and will soon be appearing on a public television station.
