On the eve of the discovery of a duplicate Earth in our solar system, the lives of a bright young student and a brilliant composer are irrevocably intertwined in a tragic accident. Through these compelling characters, Another Earth explores the issues of identity and redemption raised by the possibility of encountering a parallel reality from an alternate universe. Join us for a discussion of theories predicting the existence of multiple universes with Kyle Dawson, Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy, University of Utah, following the screening.
