A scientific film essay, narrated by Phil Morrison. A set of pictures of two picnickers in a park, with the area of each frame one-tenth the size of the one before. Starting from a view of the entire known universe, the camera gradually zooms in until we are viewing the subatomic particles on a man's hand. Written by

Never before has such grand ideas been explained so cleanly and perfectly. This is a master piece that goes beyond film and animation and goes further to show our place in the universe. A scene starts on a picnic and then the shot zooms out x10 at each second: it leaves the picnic, show all of the harbor, Chicago, the Mid-west Earth and then into deep deep space. It's simplistic and the music is cheap and weird. But the scale has never been evaluated quite like this film. And a relative showing of the speed of light is amazing. This is an important film and was remade as a Imax movie using the latest CG, which is also breathtaking, but all the credit must go the the Eames couple.
