Studium Generale | Film & Talk Short




This year, we won’t be starting off with the PAS Festival, as it’s now a biennial festival. We’ll be pulling out all the stops again in 2024, in a programme filled with art, science, theatre and music.

We will however, be present at the cultural festival MAAS! With our Film&Talk partner Lumière Cinema we screen three short documentaries on science (two in Dutch and one in English), after which we talk about it with scientists.

The Underground Astronaut, 15:00 - 15:40
Director: Marleine van der Werf
In this documentary, evolutionary biologist Toby Kiers takes us along on her epic quest to map the world’s fungi networks and understand their behaviour before it’s too late.
Dr. Roy Erkens, responsible for teaching plant evolutionary biology at the Maastricht Science Programme, joins us to share his insights.

For the documentaries in Dutch at 14:00 and 16:00 go to our Dutch page.Visit festivalmaas.nl for the complete festival programme.
The short documentaries are produced and made available by Ammodo Docs:
