It's a perspective that human beings have celebrated since ancient times but today it's reemerging, transformed, from the laboratories of modern science. Filmed in HDTV on five continents over a period of two years, the series draws on some of the best minds of the age: scientists, philosophers, scholars, priests, and shamans all share their visions and perspectives of the universe into which we're born. The Sacred Balance combines science, art, traditional knowledge and human spirituality into a new vision of the human place on Earth."

"At the height of the Cold War, 40 young Canadian soldiers were sent to Nevada in the spring of 1957 on a top secret mission, to serve as guinea pigs for the military in a nuclear test field. Most of these young men were under 20. Wearing only their cotton uniforms, they played "war games," sometimes less than 1000 yards away from exploding nuclear bombs. They then marched toward ground zero while nuclear dust settled on them. When they left Nevada in the fall of 1957, the soldiers of the Queen's Own Rifles were scattered. Under oath of secrecy, they were not to talk about their experience with anyone. Several soldiers fell victim to radiation [cancer, etc.], and children were born with birth defects. Today, 50 years later, the few soldiers who survived are fighting for justice. And the Canadian Government is trying to bury the affair.

Le jeu de la mort by Thomas Bornot ( Visual )

"Dans les années 60, une expérience psychosociale prouvait que 62% des individus administraient des chocs électriques extrêmes en obéissant aux ordres d'un scientifique. Le Jeu de la mort est un documentaire mettant en scène un faux jeu télévisée (La Zone Xtrême) durant lequel un candidat doit envoyer des décharges électriques de plus en plus fortes à un autre candidat, jusqu'à des tensions pouvant entraîner la mort. Ceci reproduit l'expérience des années 60 pour étudier l'influence de l'autorité sur l'obéissance: les décharges électriques sont fictives, un acteur feignant de les subir, et l'objectif est de tester la capacité à désobéir du candidat qui inflige ce traitement et qui n'est pas au courant de l'expérience."--Conteneur
