SynopsisIn November 1915 the physicist Albert Einstein gives a talk on general relativity theory at the Preußische Akademie in Berlin. He presents a paper of a few pages only: the 'perfect theory' that has been challenging physicists and mathematicians, nowadays even more than ever before.
Who is this man who embodied the triumph and tragedy of the 20th century as no other?
What made Einstein the genius, an ikon and the most famous thinker on earth?
And why is he still relevant to our endeavours to master the demands of the present world?
With carefully chosen reenactments and the support of prominent experts such as Freeman Dyson, Robert Schulman, Jürgen Renn and others we want to shed new and comprehensive light on the man, the myth and the realities of Einstein’s life, on his scientific and political ambitions, on his rebellious mind and enormous creativity.
