In the Footsteps of Newton to Screen at Film Festival

The educational documentary from Hanover College will screen at the Utopia Film Festival on Saturday, October 20 in Greenbelt, Maryland. 

In the Footsteps of Newton follows seven Hanover College math majors on a life-changing journey to find out how a farm boy from humble origins ends up buried among kings in Westminster Abbey.

According to the film’s website:

The students follow in the footsteps of Sir Isaac Newton, from his early life on the farm at Woolsthorpe Manor, to his student days in Grantham and academic life in Cambridge, to his final years in London. They find that to study Newton is not only to study math, physics, and astronomy, but also theology, chemistry, economics, philosophy, and the connections between Newton's story and their own lives and futures.

Watch the preview.

A limited supply of free DVDs will be given out after the screening on Saturday.
