project background for

And Yet It Moves

CONFLUENCE written by James W. Hawk

In 1514 Nicolaus Copernicus theorized that the Sun, not the Earth, was at the center of our system. In1597 Galileo stated his support for the Copernican hypothesis and spent the rest of his life validating that premise. Near the end of his life he was persecuted for that belief and was found guilty of heresy. He acquiesced at his trial, but said in a hushed tone, "And Yet It Moves".
That story has always interested me, but for the purposes of a short film, it was only a history lesson and that, in and of itself, is boring. So I thought, "wouldn't it be interesting if an alien come to our solar system during the lives of Copernicus and Galileo to perform a planetary survey. He could prove beyond a shadow of doubt that the Sun was at the center. That made the story more interesting to me.
Then I thought it would be even more interesting if Galileo was punished for being a free thinker, which he was,and Navin was momentarily rewarded for being an independent thinker. That's when I really did like the foundation of the project.
