On time and water

Over the next 100 years, the Earth will undergo greater changes than our languages and metaphors can deal with. These imminent transformations are such as to blow apart our very perception, so that all we actually hear is white noise. Andri Snær Magnason seeks to help us see through the mist and make sense of the scale of things, by presenting a blend of personal stories, science, memories and visions of the future. He weaves a narrative thread which is at once story-like, serious and perhaps, ultimately, hopeful. Prepare yourself for a journey up onto Vatnajökull, where we meet Robert Oppenheimer, father of the atomic bomb, search for the origins of life, hear the story of a relative reincarnated as a prehistoric crocodile and meet a holy man who possesses the answer to the question of the meaning of life.
