About the Film

Subtitled "An Epic Story of Cosmic, Earth and Human Transformation," this documentary re-imagines the story of the universe and reframes the human connection to the cosmos. Co-written by evolutionary philosopher Brian Thomas Swimme and Yale professor Mary Evelyn Tucker, and hosted by Swimme, Journey of the Universe weaves scientific discoveries in astronomy, geology, biology, ecology and biodiversity with humanistic insights concerning the nature of the universe, connecting such big-picture ideas as the birth of the cosmos to the invisible frontiers of the human genome, as well as our impact on Earth's evolution.
