- Short Films
This is a film adaptation of Hawking’s book of the same title dealing with the origins of the universe. It shows stories, interviews and archival material about Hawking’s personal life as much as about his scientific thoughts. At first the style of the film seemed ordinary, typical short interviews. But the experience grows on you. Partly this is due to a haunting film score by Philip Glass but mostly because of the amazing life and ideas of Stephen Hawking. Of course most opinions on this movie are completely subjective, and I have no doubt you can find it boring if you expected to find the same educational content present in “A Brief History of Time” book.
