Engage with Journey of the Universe

The documentary Journey of the Universe offers a voyage of discovery, from the origins of the cosmos to the rise of creativity and the human purpose.

If Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras knew what we knew, he would be amazed. So begins the invitation from cosmology professor Brian Thomas Swinne to step into Journey of the Universe, a documentary about the origins of the universe, the rapid expansion of human knowledge and our responsibilities to the living world. Together with Mary Evelyn Tucker, co-founder and co-director of the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale, the film tells “an epic story of the emergence of the universe and of the community of life, with a new vision for how we might bring forth a vibrant Earth Community.”

The film is set on the Greek island of Samoas, where Pythagoras lived and studied. Over the course of 24 hours, Swimme explores the limits of time and space, weaves together biology, ecology, geology and astronomy and draws the myriad connections between humans and the universe at large.

The film is screening from May-November across cities in the U.S. and Canada.
