Synopsis

A poetic documentary about the mystery of electromagnetic fields, the promise of new energy and the dangers of electromagnetic pollution. An artistic interpretation of a scientific theme, the film weaves together advanced scientific research and ancient knowledge of energy with music, images and dance. In the process, it makes electromagnetic radiation visible and audible, in an unusual exploration of what happens when we're threaded through the vast network surrounding us.
