This is a pretty old documentary explaining Einstein’s special relativity. There are no special effects here, but enough information to make you watch it twice. It explains the fundamental laws of physics such as the conservations of energy and momentum, then it follows with the examples from special relativity, explaining in detail the famous Einstein’s equation. It finishes with particle physics with the examples of the pictures of particle collisions from the accelerator. This is truly one of the most informative and educational documentaries ever made, although without any special effects whatsoever (if you don’t count the particle accelerator).
