the universe is too beautiful not to be experienced by someone

What would we see, if we could take a glance at the soul of the universe? What would be its feelings? Is there anything that would fascinate and be important to it? Is fleeting life something special for empty eternity, or is it just a spark in the neverending darkness? Story of everything that ever was and ever will be told in a slow-paced meditative way.

Director Statement

My film is a direct conclusion of my lifelong passion for science, nature, and my respect for it. I was always humbled by the unimaginable size of the universe and how lonely, yet unbelievably beautiful it is. And I was always in love with nature and animals since I was a kid. So I expressed as much of these feelings in my project as possible. Space can be depressing and today's state of the natural world even more, but I wanted to show it positively. No one needs another depressing hope-crushing movie, I wanted to show everyone how everything is beautiful and fascinating and worth fighting for. To help cope with feelings of loneliness, the unstoppable march of time, and the inevitable end of everything. And most importantly, to show that life is the most precious and rarest thing in the universe. Who will enjoy its beauty, when no one is around?
