Recently I had the good luck to preview the upcoming film – Journey of the Universe. While it was a bit anthropocentric (human-centered) because we are afterall, not the center of creation only one strand in its web, the film was engaging and informative. From emergence, creativity, complexity to the earth’s story and our own human story, beautiful photography mesmarizes the viewer.
From the film’s website:
JOURNEY OF THE UNIVERSE invites us to become fellow travelers on a journey no previous generation could have fully imagined. Through the astonishing achievements of science, we now know more about the history of the universe and the unfolding of life on Earth then ever before. We have a detailed account of how galaxies and stars, planets and living organisms, human beings and human consciousness came to be. But what role do humans play in this 14-billion year history of the universe? And how do we connect with the intricate web of life?
Eco-theologian, Brianne Swimme is the narrator of this remarkable film. Check the film’s website here to find out when it will air on your local PBS station.
