Synopsis

McAlpine keeps the vast galaxies above and beyond in a delicate balance with the earthbound world of people, gently alighting on the desert- and mountain-dwelling astronomers, fishermen, miners, and cowboys who live their lives with reverence and awe for the skies.

Critics reviews

Aiming for an unbiased perspective, McAlpine generates a sense of wonder from both spiritual and scientific modes of thought. The film doesn’t achieve much more than that—even at just 78 minutes, it feels somewhat redundant and overlong. Still there are plenty of beautiful passages.
