ANACONDA IS PLAYING AT THE SMITH RAFAEL FILM CENTER
Science on Screen wraps up with Luis Llosa’s 1997 adventure film ANACONDA featuring Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube, Jon Voight, Danny Trejo and Owen Wilson. A documentary film crew sets out on a journey up the Amazon River, where they encounter a snake-hunter in pursuit of a giant anaconda. The film, now considered a cult classic, inspired renewed worldwide interest in anacondas, though the unstoppable Jaws-style creature in the movie is not quite a fully accurate depiction of real anaconda behavior. Rated PG-13 Director: Luis Llosa (US 1997) 89 min.
The film will be followed by a conversation with Phil Tacata, an instructor with the Petaluma Wildlife Museum, and Bella Sessi, the Museum’s animal care tech.
The nonprofit Petaluma Wildlife & Natural Science Museum, a multi-room institution on the campus of Petaluma High School, is largest student-run museum of its kind in the U.S. Its collection includes over 100 taxidermy animals and dozens of live species, including a large number of snakes.
