Galileo: On the Shoulders of Giants

Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
This film is about Galileo Galilei (Michael Moriarty from the TV series "Law and Order”) who was an Italian astronomer, physicist, engineer, philosopher, and mathematician who played a major role in the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century. He has been called the "father of observational astronomy", the "father of modern physics", and the "father of science". In this historical drama, Galileo is on the verge of uncovering some of the mysteries of the universe when he’s interrupted by some of life’s more mundane problems: money, an idle, unemployed brother (Tony Nardi) and a jealous rival (Louis del Grande). Fortunately, he finds support from an unexpected source, the pampered son of the powerful Medici family. Under Galileo's tutelage, Cosimo de Medici (Kenny Vadas) finds that in searching for the stars, one has to have his feet firmly on the ground. The stakes mount as Galileo and his young protege struggle for intellectual freedom while challenging the scientific authorities in Padova. The drama set in 1605 leads to intrigue while Galileo takes serious risks on the path to the invention of the first telescope...This film is an Emmy Award Winner!
