Absurdity of certainty

IMG_6898.jpg

Explore how the West became so dogmatic with quantum physicist Dr. F. David Peat and comedian Jena Axelrod.

Surreal independent documentary, Absurdity of Certainty pokes fun of how we see the world. With theoretical quantum physicist Dr. F. David Peat we explore what it means that innovations like maps, clocks, Newton's Laws contributed to a Rise of Certainty in our thinking, and how innovations like Quantum Uncertainty and Chaos Theory lead to a Rise of Uncertainty. As The Observer and The Observed cannot be separated in quantum theory, so Director Jena Axelrod and the film crew join David's family and Pari's townspeople for discussions over shared Tuscan dinners, meals which embody the holism for which the film advocates.
