Children of the Universe
A primary school class in the Swiss mountains embarks on an adventure to discover the mysteries of the universe, guided by the astrophysicist Stephanie Juneau.
Over the course of a week-long fun workshop on astronomy, the kids discover that every little thing – from the infinitely small to the infinitely large – is connected. Their reactions, their games and above all their innocent, often clumsy, questions inevitably refer to a bigger, almost metaphysical and universal questioning: ‘What is our place in the universe?’ Astrophysicist Mariangela Bonavita will join us after the screening for fun children’s activities.

This screening will have an introduction by Noémie Mendelle, director of the Scottish Documentary Film Institute. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the children's activities planned for this screening (and advertised in our brochure) will unfortunately no longer take place.
