Born in 1879 as the son of Jewish parents, Albert Einstein is one of the most important scientists of the 20th century. His research and theories on matter, space and time have revolutionized not only modern physics but also how we view the world. In 1919, he became internationally famous after his General Theory of Relativity was proved, receiving the Nobel Prize in 1921 for the “law of the photoelectric effect”.
Einstein is considered to be the epitome of a researcher and a genius. He was an adventurer seeking to find out what holds our universe together. Yet, he was also a man who was greatly interested in politics and human welfare. He was committed to global peace processes as well as social harmony and the value of education.
Our film primarily explores his philosophy of learning. Imagination and curiosity were always more important to him than mere rote-learning. He considered the encouragement of individual skills to be most important.
He was and remains a fascinating personality who always went his own way and sought to inspire others to do the same thing.
