One Man’s Mission to Make Science Matter!!

Bill Nye is retiring his kid show act in a bid to become more like his late professor, astronomer Carl Sagan. Sagan dreamed of launching a spacecraft that could change interplanetary exploration. Bill sets out to accomplish Sagan’s space mission, but he is pulled away when he is challenged by evolution and climate change contrarians to defend the scientific consensus. Can Bill show the world why science matters in a culture increasingly indifferent to evidence?

“An absorbing and entertaining portrait, of both the science evangelist and the guy behind him.” – Lora Grady, Washington Post

“A surprisingly kaleidoscopic portrait of someone we thought we already knew.” – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

“There’s now an urgency, a sense that we are in peril because fundamental truths about how the world works are being ignored and ridiculed.” – Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle

“Channeling Nye’s own gift for making complex ideas simple and clear, the filmmakers edit together these various aspects of Nye’s life with deceptive ease, drawing on interviews and archival material and following him throughout his hectic schedule.” – Peter Keough, Boston Globe
