Science vs. Fiction: Jonathan Nolan

Famed Academy Award and Emmy Award-nominated writer, director, and producer Jonathan Nolan joins PW Director of Sciences Janna Levin to talk about his catalogue of imaginative works, from "Memento" to "The Prestige" to "Westworld" to "The Peripheral." The two discuss collaborating with his brother, the promise and perils of AI, the origins of Batman, and more. As Levin notes on Nolan's canon, "One of the most amazing things about looking at your work is you seem infused naturally with a genuine love of science. You’re that rare animal who also finds these dramatic narrative threads and extrapolations from those ideas.” ♦
