Synopsis

Synchronicity is a sensitive and thought-provoking portrayal of French quantum physicist Francois Martin and his relationship with synchronicity, or meaningful coincidence. The film relates Martin's transformation from hard-core physicist to someone who embraces synchronicity as an enriching gift. It follows him in intriguing encounters with, among others, a French puppeteer, a Tibetan Buddhist monk, and his own aging mother. Martin also meets scientists at the CERN particle accelerator in Switzerland, where he demonstrates the analogy he sees between quantum physics and synchronicity. Martin's gradual unpacking of the underlying interconnectedness between things, is interspersed with reconstructions of two fascinating instances of synchronicity from England and Finland, creating a film which invites viewers to open themselves up to the unexpected, to the delight of synchronicity.
