Genius and Geometry - Traces of Our Enigmatic Ancestors

Genie und Geometrie - Spuren unserer rätselhaften Vorfahren

This documentary road movie through the heart of central Europe covers a period of almost seven thousand years, from circular earthworks dating from around 5,000 BC to the Baroque urban planning of the German city of Karlsruhe. A particular objective of this documentary is to encourage the viewer to check things out in person on their own computers. A good example of this is the prehistoric monument at Avebury in southern England, whose degree of latitude of 51.42857 comes to exactly 360 when multiplied by seven. The distance around the globe over the poles is exactly seven times the distance from the equator to Avebury. Is this merely chance or a sign of some deep knowledge? The film does not try to construct speculative answers, but promises yet more mysteries from the past and reveals further traces of our brilliant, geometrically oriented forefathers.

Available as 1x45 min. / 1x52 min.
