About the film
It takes 8.3 Minutes for the Sun’s rays to reach the Earth, a fact that Professor Chamer
– a reclusive expert on solar energy – knows all too well. Shot in High Definition and
starring Colin Salmon, this short film takes a close look at the burning divide between
modern science and ancient superstition.
