About the Movie
"The Principle", destined to become one of the most controversial films of our time, brings before the public eye astonishing results from recent large-scale surveys of our universe-surveys which disclose unexpected evidence of a preferred direction in the cosmos, aligned with our supposedly insignificant Earth."The Principle” includes narration by Kate Mulgrew (“Star Trek Voyager”, “Orange Is The New Black”, and “Ryan’s Hope”), stunning animations by BUF Compagnie Paris ("Life of Pi", “Thor”), and commentary from prominent scientists including George Ellis, Michio Kaku, Julian Barbour, Lawrence Krauss, and Max Tegmark. Tracing the development of cosmology from its inception (Stonehenge, the Great Pyramid at Giza), through the great revolution of Copernicus, to the astonishing new discoveries of Earth-oriented alignments in the largest structures of our visible universe, "The Principle" leads us face-to-face with the question, and the challenge- what does this mean for the future of mankind?
This is a truly ground-breaking documentary. As far as I know, this is the first time that the Copernican Principle- which informs so much of modern thinking- has been examined as a theoretical entity.
Contrary to some internet rumours, scientists like Lawrence Krauss are not misrepresented.
His views, and a range of others, are given ample time to be thoroughly elucidated.
Actual data from scientific experiments (such as the three recent CMB probes) are also presented.
It is up to the viewer to consider these elements and ponder the implications.
For that reason it is a very challenging film and not something you will find on popular science channels like the Discovery network.
At the same time, the material is presented artfully in a film of high production values.
