...When You Look Away / Når du kigger væk

...Når du kigger væk // Når du kigger væk (Phie Ambo, DK, 2017)

The documentary examines the subject of consciousness in terms of quantum physics in close collaboration with scientists at the Niels Bohr Institute. The film’s narrative form gives the audience the opportunity to follow a process where the results are not presented beforehand, and it raises a series of basic scientific questions such as: What if basic causal relationships in the world do not work like we think they do? Should we understand the relationship between our consciousness and the physical world in a whole new way? What is happening at the science frontier, where accepted truths and wild theories collide? Could a new way of understanding our human consciousness come from an entirely unexpected place?
