The Mystery of Mystère
Cirque du Soleil Images
Filmed /// 2007 | Las Vegas Run Time (80 min)

Cirque du Soleil presents “Mystery of Mystère!”, a captivating documentary on Mystère, the critically acclaimed theatrical production playing at the Treasure Island in Las Vegas. Meet world renowned anthropologist Philippe Frey, geneticist David Suzuki, physicist Fred Alan Wolf and astrophysicist Trinh Xuan Thuan as they boldly explore The Mysterey of Mystère through each of their fascinating and distinctive scientific field of expertise.

As the documentary plays on, the show and its mythology are continuously explored through seemingly less and less relevant conversational clips from the scientists, and the meaning of their contributions become more and more mysterious (read: boring). Discussions about the origin of man and his relationship to the desert notwithstanding how do relativity theory and quantum physics concepts relate?
