The Most Ordinary Occupation

  • Czech Republic

This documentary offers a poetic reflection on mathematics as a science that "captures all forces, powerful and terrible.” We are introduced to experts from the Institute of Mathematics at Czechoslovak Academy Science (CSAV), who are programming a powerful computing machine to evaluate data on journeys to the depths of the Earth or the outer reaches of space.
