Trivia

Some of the footage produced for this film was edited and used in the background of the 2017 pop video for the Bryan Adams song Please Stay one of his two new songs in his album Ultimate. This nearly did not happen as initially the Director Stephen van Vuuren thought the e-mail sent by Bryan Adams requesting to use the footage was a hoax. See more »

Artistic, Beautiful, Inspiring
26 June 2018 | by Ron M.See all my reviews

I saw "In Saturn's Rings" at the Museum of Flight in Seattle and went back two weeks later to see it again. It's a stunningly beautiful film, mostly assembled from high-resolution pictures taken by NASA's Cassini space probe. As LeVar Burton's voiceover says, "This is real"--I appreciated that every image used in the film was taken from real photographs with no use of CGI. The film starts with a series of images demonstrating the scale of the universe and the history of human civilization, but it really hits its stride about halfway through when it focuses on the Saturn imagery. The highlight is a montage of Saturn photos using Barber's "Adagio for Strings" as backtrack. This is much more artistic than your typical documentary; the focus is on inspiration rather than information. Absolutely worth checking out.
