Back in 2009, the folks at RadioLab tackled another big question: "What happens at the moment when we slip from life...to the other side? Is it a moment? If it is, when exactly does it happen? And what happens afterward?"
The show (listen here) inspired filmmaker Will Hoffman to shoot a video the meditates on the little moments that give life (and death) their meaning. Some moments stand in isolation. Others moments are connected, creating a link between birth and death, cause and effect, beginnings and ends. In this audio clip, Hoffman talks with RadioLab co-host Robert Krulwich about the vision informing the video simply called Moments. And, if it delights, don't miss two other Hoffman/RadioLab productions, one simply called Words, the other Symmetry.
