Hundreds of years ago, people risked their lives to prove the earth is round. When Columbus sailed the ocean blue, many people expected him to fall off the ocean’s cliff. After millions of boat, plane, and rocket ship rides around what most people agree is a round earth, there are an increasing number of people who now think the world is actually flat.
In Behind The Curve, Director Clark followers the leaders behind this conspiracy theory as they rally to spread their message and challenge scientific proofs. The documentary does a great job of presenting diverse views and opinions from both flat earthers and the scientific community.
