The Revolution is in Progress
Symbiotic Earth: How Lynn Margulis rocked the boat and started a scientific revolution.
A film by John Feldman
There is a revolution happening in science, right now. Yet most people
are unaware of it. “Symbiotic Earth: How Lynn Margulis rocked the boat and started a scientific revolution.” is
about this revolution and how it affects our daily lives. One of the
revolutionaries, and the star of this film, is Lynn Margulis, a
courageous evolutionist and geoscientist who died unexpectedly of a
stroke in November of 2011. A lively, personable, and down-to-earth
scientist, her pioneering ideas cast doubt on accepted scientific
“dogma,” and she had to triumph over ridicule, scorn, and chauvinism.
The feature length documentary consists of five interconnected stories
which address common misconceptions about science, evolution, the role
of the genome, and the environment. Each is told by Margulis and her
colleagues – other ground-breaking scientists.
