"It is the courage of our questions, not the answers, that defines us."
SIGNIFICANCE is a sci-fi thriller set on an isolated observatory in the English countryside.
Miles (Joel Gillman) is an amateur astronomer who passionately searches the heavens each night seeking ... something, anything.
On a clear and cold winter night, he makes a startling discovery while scanning a nearby star system.
After summoning his skeptical former mentor Andrew (Adrian Schiller) to the observatory, a mysterious encounter convinces Miles his discovery has serious implications for the entire world.
SIGNIFICANCE is the epitome of provocative, cerebral, more substantive science fiction, rather than special and visual effects extravaganzas.
The films draws its narrative power from ruminations about our place within the incomprehensibly vast cosmos.
In fact, the short was inspired by the iconic Pale Blue Dot photograph taken over 25 years ago by NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft, at the behest of famed astronomer Carl Sagan.
