Harvard Physicist/Filmmaker Peter Galison Joins Tom Needham on SOUNDS OF FILM


Harvard Physicist/Filmmaker Peter Galison Joins Tom Needham for a Remarkable Discussion About Black Holes on the next SOUNDS OF FILM.

Peter is the director of BLACK HOLES: THE EDGE OF ALL WE KNOW. The documentary asks what can black holes teach us about the boundaries of knowledge? These holes in spacetime are the darkest objects and the brightest—the simplest and the most complex. With unprecedented access, Black Hole | The Edge of All We Know follows two powerhouse collaborations. Stephen Hawking anchors one, striving to show that black holes do not annihilate the past. Another group, working in the world’s highest-altitude observatories, creates an earth-sized telescope to capture the first-ever image of a black hole. Interwoven with other dimensions of exploring black holes, these stories bring us to the pinnacle of humanity’s quest to understand the universe.
