The film's narration is a polemic written by Hal Dace, fully researched and cited.
Most documentaries show experts discussing important details. Most science papers use citations in a bibliography to discuss important details that exist before a scientist begins one's own research.
This documentary uses the latter method so the film will be more enjoyable as a work of art and allow those with a strong interest to verify facts via the bibliography on one's own.
What is epistrophy? It has been described as, "A composition that works toward every note being at once improvisational and intentional." Films are more like symphonies than jazz improvisations, and that's what's wrong with them. --Hal Dace
