Has anyone else seen this? What did you think? There is a lot of philosophy tossed around and interesting reactions and questions.

I hadn't heard of that one at all, Bmat ... but it seems as if it could be interesting. The reviews at Amazon (for what that's worth) suggest that it's thought provoking and interesting, though pretty low-budget -- as you'd expect from a crowd-funded project. How did you hear about it?

A former colleague and still a friend of my husband says this is his favorite DVD. He sent us one for Christmas so we watched it first thing. Yes very low budget for sure, but adequate sets and filming for what it was, a discussion of philosophy and religion.
I plan to watch it several more times. The friend said he watches it regularly. There are points and questions that arise all the time.
Thank you for the link. I don't know why as long time sf fans that my husband and I haven't heard of it either.
