    About

    In the summer of 1610, one of the first telescopes invented by Galileo finally arrives in Prague, the capital of the German Empire. During ten nights, Johannes Kepler, Emperor Rudolph II's astronomer, can at last explore the sky with the help of this new invention and see what no one has seen until then. The terrace where Kepler sets up his observatory becomes the place where the imperial court gathers. Night after night, people come to the show, look through the telescope, participate in the dissection of a human eye, and plot against the emperor. In the midst of the tumult, Johannes Kepler, unclassifiable and indefatigable, traces his singular path between science and superstition, freedom and intolerance.
