Movies by their very nature are meant to be entertaining. But why not learn a little something along the way?
For generations National Geographic has enlightened, entertained, and educated the world with photographs and articles in their magazines. In recent years they have added a television network and film to the list of available materials.
One such film will make its appearance at the Buffalo Museum of Science; but this is not just another film about nature. “Mysteries of the Unseen World” is a 3D film to astound and amaze movie goers as the film delves into a universe of things that cannot be seen by the naked eye because they are too fast, too slow, or too small. And some things in this world are invisible and can only be seen with the aid of modern technology.
Award winning film director Louie Schwartzberg takes viewers on a journey of the Unseen World with the help of high speed photography, time lapse photography, an electron microscope, and nanotechnology as Forest Whitaker explains how a bee sees his nectar, what happens when water hits the pavement, and how a dragonfly makes his flight. Watch flowers as they bloom before your very eyes and even see how those kernels became the popcorn you are eating as you watch the film.
Watch as Bill Nye the Science Guy and Mr. Rogers meets “Star Trek” for a 40 minute 3D production of a peek into the “Mysteries of the Unseen World”.
