Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

Pooling our resources, a movie club was organized. Our “big screen” consisted of bed linens hung on the wall and we used the projector and portable speakers to create our private cinema. We made a list of all of the movies that participants had and generated a voting list to determine which films we would watch together. Harry Potter nights were very popular but we only had access to the first four movies. Lack of internet meant we weren’t able to download the remainder of the series! Even though I have seen all of the films, it felt incomplete to not finish the series. I had to watch the remaining movies during my travels home.
