THE MAN WHO COLOURS STARS
1 x 52’
Good for TV, DVD, CVD and Video.
The life and times of David Malin, the world's most famous astronomy-photographer.
Malin unveils the cosmos as if our eyes were a thousand times more sensitive.
He unlocks the secrets of starlight. His key is colour. Working
through giant telescopes at the Anglo-Australian Observatory, New South
Wales, Malin’s ingenious camerawork and dark-room techniques enable astronomers
to decipher distance, movement, structure and elements - the evolution of
our galactic neighbourhood. His work prompted a re-think of the way
galaxies develop. The Man Who Colours Stars interweaves photography,
science and biography.
The documentary won top festival award at Italy’s Prix Leonardo International
Film Festival in 1997.
