The speed of our thoughts

Trailer

Erika Brücken is a German director who executes with her team a documentary film about astronomic science research in southern Spain. Once she arrives in Granada, she´s picked up by a scientific proponent who will be their guide during the stay. Due to the meetings with scholars – amongst them, Enrique, an astrophysicist with a progressive visual illness that turns him blind – the film unravels the complexity of its main topic taking us further than the simple question, “What is light?”

A vital, multidisciplinary and highly heterodox review: An authentic journey of initiation, full of thoughts, considerations, doubts and many un-answered questions about light, this incredible source of scientific information that should respond: Where do we come from? And, what are we made of?
