Back to the Future

In this 1980s sci-fi classic, small-town California teen Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is thrown back into
the 50s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) goes awry.
Traveling through time in a modified DeLorean, Marty encounters young versions of his parents (Crispin
Glover and Lea Thompson), and must make sure that they fall in love or he’ll cease to exist.


Introduction and contextualized and corrective commentary will be provided by UC San Diego physicist
Brian Shotwell.
