“A thrilling post-MTV, roller-coaster ride, Run Lola Run is the internationally acclaimed sensation about two star-crossed lovers who have only minutes to change the course of their lives. Time is running out for Lola (Franka Potente). She’s just received a frantic phone call from her boyfriend, Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu), who’s lost a small fortune belonging to his mobster boss. If Lola doesn’t replace the money in twenty minutes, Manni will surely suffer severe consequences. Set to a throbbing techno score, Lola’s like a human stun gun!'”

About Cabaret Cinema:Time
Curated by Rubin Museum fellow and neuroscientist David Eagleman, Cabaret Cinema delves into the mysteries of time. Aside from their listed duration, movies often carry us through periods far beyond the minutes that pass as we sit in a theater. Time lingers in suspense, is driven forward by fast-talking dialogue, or warps through sudden flashbacks. What does the world of cinema reveal about our experience of time?

About the Introducer
After graduating from Cambridge University, UK, with first class honors, Rikki Rabinovich moved to New York City in 2014 to pursue a PhD in neuroscience at Columbia University, where she is currently a researcher at the Bruno Lab. As an undergraduate, Rikki studied individual differences in cognition and behavior, in humans as well as rodents, focusing on emotion regulation and cognitive flexibility. In the future, she plans to continue investigating the neural circuitry that gives rise to perceptual, cognitive, and behavioral processes. Rikki participates in NeuWrite, a collaboration between scientists and writers that strives to improve science writing and communication. In addition, she helps educate younger students as a teaching assistant for an undergraduate neuroscience course, as well as through the Columbia University Neuroscience Outreach program.
