directed by Samuel Buggeln
One week from today: a man has had a mysterious encounter, one that might change everything. In a small room somewhere, a brilliant interrogator questions him about the experience. Through profound humor and startling twists, their conversation explores what it means to be human in the infinity of the universe. In the meantime, remember the Golden Record of sounds and images that went out on the Voyager rockets in 1977? What is up with those images? (Ithaca connection: Carl Sagan helped select them from his office at Cornell!)
