Norman Leto’s avant-garde science(-fiction) documentary is a wildly ambitious, mind-bending voyage through the history of the universe, from the Big Bang to the quantum revolution and beyond.
Inspired by the best-selling author David Deutsch's work (The Beginning of Infinity, The Fabric of Reality), Leto leads the viewer in a dense but fascinating essay on the mysteries of inner and outer space. His far reaching theories are delivered in a wryly amusing voiceover and are accompanied by a series of dazzling CGI animations of waves and particles, illustrating abstract scientific concepts like the Higgs field through impeccable 3D models.
Leto is credited as writer, director, editor and lead animator on Photon and has pulled together a dizzying array of elements to create a true cinematic curio.
A Q&A with Norman Leto will follow the screening.
