Debuts on DVD September 27
Kultur announces the DVD release of Einstein: The Man Behind the Genius. This DVD will be available September 27, 2011.
This unique one-man show stars actor Steve Polinsky who portrays the great scientist Albert Einstein. This dramatic production presents Einstein's life, and the ideals, conflicts, humor and compassion of the man who revolutionized our view of the universe. In the tradition of the finest one-man shows, this play has reaped its share of critical acclaim, and is now presented for the first time on DVD. This revealing program explores Einstein's private life. We discover in him a man of humor, deep moral commitment, and involvement in the political issues of his time, a contagious enthusiasm for life and a never-ending wonder about the world around him.
We meet Albert Einstein at his home in Princeton, New Jersey in the autumn of his life. He recalls his youth in the patent office and the objections of his superiors working on a scientific paper during office hours-a paper that turned out to propose the theory of relativity. He is fascinated by everything around him-in a cup of tea the swirling leaves suggest to him aspects of the nature of the universe. A photo reminds him of the pain he suffered when he separated from his first wife. The warmth of his feelings towards people is matched by the outrage he feels toward the rise of fascism which forced him to leave his native Germany. Arriving in America, Einstein often speaks out passionately about the dangers of nuclear power. He talks of the honor he felt being offered the presidency of Israel, and he imagines a conversation with Sir Isaac Newton.
In this thoughtful, provoking, humorous and human portrayal of Albert Einstein we discover not only the man who transformed our conception of the universe, but also the best parts of ourselves.
