Prepare yourself for UNE Sci Flicks’ upcoming event this Thursday April 27, as we witness the spread of a deadly, fast-acting global virus in 2011 action thriller Contagion.

To give you a preview of what’s to come, we sat down with Prof. Usher and had a chat regarding the not-so farfetched hypothetical of a civilisation collapsing virus.
