As a young boy, Thebe Medupe was fascinated by astronomy---fascinated enough to build his own telescope from a discarded bit of pipe, and fascinated enough to be the astrophysicist he became. He plays himself in a dramatized autobiography in which he travels through Namibia and Mali, speaking with!Kung and Dogon healers, diviners and hunters about their notions of the sun, the moon, the stars--making the film as much a celebration of African culture as of astronomy.
