But with such an ancient history, when did the witch first appear? Early mythologies: In Norse mythology we have the...

What the Bleep Do We Know!?

This hard-to-describe movie, which combines talking-head documentary footage with a fictional narrative, attempts to explain quantum physics in terms most audiences can understand.
