Serene Universe DVDbox"Do you look up on a clear night and gaze in wonder at the stars deep in the Universe? They provoke inspiration and awe, a moment of calm, quiet, and peace in our hectic world. Serene Universe combines the awe of the Universe with these healing moments of serenity. It is a unique one hour film experience in which images and music are intimately intertwined. Starting on our beautiful planet, Serene Universe takes you slowly above the Earth, into the Solar System, the Galaxy, Deep Space and finally your inner space. Serene Universe is an entirely independent project by Maarten Roos and William Zeitler."
