Here’s a very satisfying film made about Sagan’s Pale Blue Dot. Highly recommended. Sagan reads to a background of visual commentary.

Sagan was a genius. The movie clips didn’t do much for me, though. I also thought that the music was a little too loud. To elaborate upon Sagan’s art reminds me of the unnecessary new versions of the Beatles’ music.

Yes, well clearly Sagan’s words are what make it work.

I liked this one of a similar theme, posted to honor the Make March Carl Sagan Month drive.
