2015 marks the 60th anniversary of Albert Einstein’s death, and the subsequent disappearance of his brain. After his brain was stolen by the doctor trusted to perform his autopsy, the priceless specimen was examined by scientists whose goal was to try and determine what made this seemingly normal man change the face of science and define the word genius. This documentary follows the path of Einstein’s physical brain and all the places it traveled, while simultaneously telling the story of Einstein the man. It dives deep into Einstein’s life, his theories and not just what we’ve learned about the human brain by studying his, but what we have yet to learn.
Bigfoot is America’s most legendary creature and one that has always inspired more questions than answers. Could something resembling a massive man-ape really be roaming forests and hiding in the shadows undetected? Whether you believe in Bigfoot or not, there’s something provocative about the idea that we could co-exist. What if one day we did more than catch a glimpse of one? What if we captured the creature? This two-hour, semi-scripted special, compiled by a director who traveled the world looking for proof Bigfoot actually exists, takes an unexpected turn when a Sasquatch capture is caught on camera. What happens when what most of us think is fiction becomes fact? And what does it mean for us all if the creature really is out there…
