After making its World Premiere at CPH:DOX in Copenhagen, provocative new documentary Chasing Einstein is coming to the UK. Later this month Steve Brown and Timothy Wheeler‘s feature will make it’s UK Premiere at the SciFi London Film Festival. May 2019 marking the centennial of Sir Eddington’s observation of the solar eclipse that provided the first test of Einstein’s theory.
The film probes the frontiers of modern physics to see how leading scientists today still struggle with the paradoxes of Einstein’s 100 year old theory but can’t seem to move beyond it. But what do we do when Einstein’s dominant paradigm can no longer answer our biggest questions about the universe?
Ignite Channel has released a full Trailer to celebrate the upcoming film, check it out…
Nobody has managed to challenge Einstein’s theory of gravity, even though the theory has led to the shocking conclusion that the vast majority of the universe’s gravity must be due to a mysterious form of invisible matter which nobody has ever observed. But now physics stands at a crossroads. Many of the sharpest brains in physics have dedicated their lives to search for this “Dark Matter” while others are working on a new theory of gravity.
Chasing Einstein follows leading scientists at the largest particle accelerator (CERN), the largest underground labs (XENON), the largest telescope arrays, and the LIGO gravitational wave detector to find out whether Einstein’s theory of relativity, as it passes its 100th birthday, stands the test of time. You don’t need a PhD in rocket science to let yourself be carried away by this fascinating film documenting the hunt to answer one of the greatest open questions about our Universe.
Chasing Einstein will have its UK Premiere on Sunday 19th May, 1pm at Stratford Picturehouse,
