Film Trailer: Journey of the Universe

Recently I saw  Brian Swimme and Mary Evalyn Tucker’s Journey of the Universe, a delightful documentary that follows Brian as he tours Samos, the Greek island that was the birthplace of the ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras.

The movie asserts that we can only truly address the ecological crises of our times when we finally realize what our origins are and how we belong to the Universe—and as we foment a sense of respect and reverence for the Web of Life.

The film will be released in July, and (if I remember correctly), will also be on PBS this fall.

From their website, “Using his skills as a masterful storyteller, Swimme connects such big picture issues as the birth of the cosmos 14 billion years ago – to the invisible frontiers of the human genome – as well as to our current impact on Earth’s evolutionary dynamics. Through his engaging and thoughtful observations audiences everywhere will discover the profound role we play in this intricate web of life. From the Big Bang–to the epic impact humans have on the planet today–this film is designed to inspire a new and closer relationship with Earth in a period of growing environmental and social crisis.”
