PULSARS – A TALE OF COSMIC CLOCKS
SPAIN, ITALY / 2022 / 24 MIN
Alma embarks on an unexpected journey into space, led by a mysterious scientist. What was supposed to be a simple trip to the museum turns into her life-changing adventure.
At the center of the journey are the Pulsar stars and the surprising story of the young scientist who discovered them.
Pulsar is an unprecedented film project that brings together storytellers and scientists
We asked ourselves, how can we tell a captivating story about the cosmos without losing sight of the accuracy of scientific information? The result is a short film aimed at young viewers that combines live action and animation. We also wanted to deal with the issue of girls’ access to the study of science and the gregarious role that women still have in the sector today.
It seems important to us to state that today any young person can take an interest in astrophysics.
