This documentary explores the founding character of heaven as an element of formation of cultures and as a motivation for the search for knowledge in its various manifestations, such as myths, art, science and philosophy.
From a poetic and polyphonic approach that places different knowledge in dialogue and avoids hierarchies and dichotomies, the film proposes an understanding of heaven as an asset in an expanded sense, that is, a good that is both natural and cultural.
The exploration of photographic and videographic images with fisheye lens seeks to value the dimension of the human experience of observation and contemplation of the sky, inviting the viewer to rethink its relation with the firmament and to strengthen ties often weakened in the contemporary context.

We overcame language barriers, problems related to distance and information flow time. Thanks to modern technologies and communication devices, we develop our civilization – we are changing the world and ourselves.
