Piled Higher and Deeper (PhD) Movie 2

The PhD comic about life as a graduate student led to a Piled Higher and Deeper movie in 2011, and now a sequel in 2015. (See the 200 most popular PhD Comics!)

The sequel is "a comedy about life (or the lack thereof) in academia. Two young scientists (a quantum physicist and a molecular biologist) search for significance in the high stakes world of academic research." (If you missed the first movie, they have it available on their website for $5. We'll also be screening it as a double-feature for our Burnaby screenings.)

The film is only being shown on university campuses and we'll be bringing it to SFU's campuses for several free screenings this fall. The Burnaby events will be double-features, where we'll screen both of the movies consecutively. Only the second movie will be shown at Surrey and Vancouver.
