An epic story of Cosmic, Earth, and Human Transformation
We have discovered what no previous generation knew - the ways in which our galaxies and stars, planets and living organisms emerged within the vast drama of the universe. Journey Of The Universe guides us through an elegant telling of this epic story, from the origins of life to our present challenges. Today, the survival of species and entire ecosystems depend upon the choices humans make.
Weaving modern science with enduring wisdom from the world's cultures, Journey Of The Universe explores cosmic and Earth evolution as a profound process of creativity, connection and interdependence, and offers an opportunity to respond to the ecological and social challenges of our times. Written by evolutionary philosopher Brian Swimme and Yale University Historian of Religions Mary Evelyn Tucker, directed by Patsy Northcutt and David Kennard (Carl Sagan's Cosmos), the Emmy Award-winning film was created in collaboration with a team of expert scientists, scholars and filmmakers.
What role do humans play in this 14 billion-year process, and how do we connect with the intricate web of life?
