A dance film based on a musical score by Dinu Ghezzo, inspired by Galileo’s Letter to The Grand Duchess Christina.

In his 1615 essay, Galileo defends freedom of scientific inquiry and argues that the Bible should have no role in resolving questions in fields such as physics and astronomy. The dance film was shot on location in Joshua Tree, California.
