Film Description:

“SPARK” (Átimo) addresses our relationship with Time, Aging and the paradoxes of Knowledge, through the clash between views of Philosophy, Physics and personal experience around one of the most important theories in the history of science: the Theory of Relativity.
Created by Albert Einstein, the Theory of Relativity was proven more than 100 years ago to the world through an experiment carried out IN BRAZIL. And later, it ended up changing the course of history with one of humanity’s most infamous and dangerous inventions: the atomic bomb.
With the participation of the philosopher Mario Sergio Cortella, the poet Rubem Alves (in memorian) and one of the last survivors of the atomic attack on Hiroshima, Takashi Morita, Átimo talks about this small cosmic spark that makes up our lifetime.
