WORLD PREMIERE

When a location scout tours an old French chateau for a possible film production, he spends the afternoon engaged in a dynamic conversation about philosophy and science with the property’s representative. She is a beautiful young woman who is passionate about the chateau’s history; most notably about the story of a famous book that was set on the property, written by Bernard le Bovier de Fontenelle. Known as the “Father of Popular Science,” Fontenelle was a philosopher, scientist, and writer who made complex scientific ideas easier to understand for the common man. His book, Conversations on the Plurality of Worlds, revolves around a philosopher and an aristocratic woman who spend a week walking around the chateau, talking about philosophy and science. Sound familiar? As the film progresses, scenes begin to loop and overlap, creating a complex and captivating reality. Imaginative and engaging, AROUND THE SUN is a beautiful portrait of two people caught in the perplexing world of time and space. —G.S.
