Sun and Man – 2018

Everything you’ve always wanted to know about the Sun - 2 x 45'


SUN AND MAN is a gripping documentary exploring the essential relationship between humans and the Sun. Anthropologists, astrophysicists, historians and climatologists help us understand how the Sun has shaped us in many ways – from religious beliefs to our connection to time and even the colour of our skin and the texture of our hair.

Thanks to scientific progress, we have also learned how to use it in return, putting the Sun back at the core of our environmental issues.
