The film tells a comprehensive story drawing on astronomy and physics to explain the emergence of galaxies and stars, geology and chemistry to understand the formation of Earth, biology and botany to trace life’s evolution, and anthropology and history to see the rise of humans. An open facilitated discussion will follow the film screening. A sandwich lunch will be available at 12:30 p.m. (for $5/person payable at the door in cash). Please register.
