Baby Hezten / Bringing Up Baby (Howard Hawks, 1938) VITORIA-GASTEIZ
Still from the film.

Palaeontologist David Huxley must make a good impression on society matron Mrs. Random, who is considering donating one million dollars to his museum. On the day before his wedding, Huxley meets Mrs. Random’s high-spirited young niece, Susan Vance, a madcap adventuress who immediately falls for the straitlaced scientist.

First Javier Aizpurua will give a brief presentation and after the screening there will be a question and answer session.

About the speaker


Javier Aizpurua is a physicist who studies the interaction between light and nanostructured matter in order to develop applications in miniaturized optoelectronics, biosensorics or quantum information, among others. He is Ikerbasque Professor at DIPC, where he coordinates the Basque Quantum initiative of the Basque Government too. After his PhD at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), Aizpurua continued his training at Chalmers University in Gothenburg (Sweden) and at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Maryland (USA), to later join DIPC and the Materials Physics Center of San Sebastian (CSIC-UPV/EHU) where he has developed his research from 2004 to 2023, forming a world reference Nanophotonics Theory group. He has recently won the Euskadi Research Award and he has been named Distinguished Researcher of the UPV/EHU.
