PHILADELPHIA, PA – Chestnut Hill College will show the film Journey of the Universe on Monday, November 7, at 6 p.m. in the East Parlor of St. Joseph Hall.
Journey of the Universe follows cosmic, earth and human transformation. The dramatic, expansive film re-imagines the creation of the universe and reframes the human connection to the cosmos.

The film is narrated by evolutionary philosopher Brian Thomas Swimme, and was produced by Patsy Northcutt and David Kennard. The film was written by Swimme and Yale religion historian Mary Evelyn Tucker.
