Dir.: Julia Newman | USA 2020 | Albert Einstein, the most famous scientist of all time, was a world-renowned celebrity. An anti-war firebrand, Einstein spoke out on issues ranging from women’s rights and racism to immigration and nuclear arms control. But today, his image has been relegated to that of a charmingly absent-minded genius. He was, in fact, a powerful force for social change and a model for political activism. Using a wealth of rarely seen archival footage and correspondence alongside illuminating interviews, filmmaker Julia Newman makes the case that Albert Einstein’s example of social and political activism is as important today as are his brilliant, ground-breaking theories. (80 min., Eng., Heb. subt.)
