a lack of computers?

There is a movie out now called “Genesis”. Maybe you have already seen it, or perhaps have seen “Microcosmos” by the same people? I haven’t seen it yet, but from what I understand it is a movie that looks at the creating of the Earth and life on Earth from the view of someone that has had very limited exposure to computers or any type of modern technology that we consider to part of our every day life.

the film is apparently (I haven’t seen it yet) narrated by an African elder and storyteller. He used myths and fables to explain his version of the story of “time, matter, birth and death.” I will be interested to see this and I wonder if his version is similar to that of the scientific world – the one that has been made possible to fathom and grasp only with the aide of technology!?!?

As a side note, when I was in Kenya, we spent about five days in an extremely rural village where people were living in mud huts (not that this is unusual) and sharing beds with goats, but had still learned about, and acquired, email addresses!

The movie is playing now at AMC.
