This remarkable, immersive mixed-reality documentary about space-time, narrated by Tony Stark (yes, that’s his real name) of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, places a hologram of the viewer inside an observatory with the astrophysicist and allows them, in real time, to manipulate the laws of relativity, black holes, and curved space-time while he expounds upon the scientific phenomena.

Supported by swissnex San Francisco, Dart 17, and Pro Helvetia.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
