Cutting edge!
12 March 2000 | by (Kingston, Ontario) – See all my reviews

Centered around one woman's lifelong quest to find the edge of the world, this short 'documentary' convincingly explains why the world is flat. By taking itself so seriously, the film demonstrates the power of the documentary: we expect documentaries to be a reliable source of truth and we readily believe them. Watching all these scientists speak so convincingly about the flatness of the Earth, I actually found myself wanting to believe them! This film is great fun, and would also be a great tool for teaching history or the scientific method.
