Portland German Film Festival presents MEASURING THE WORLD

Based on Daniel Kehlmann’s novel (a best-seller in Germany), Measuring the World chronicles the explorations of two iconic 19th-century figures, scientist Alexander von Humboldt and mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss. Press materials describe this as “a visually stunning epic”; that’s probably no PR hype, given that the cinematographer here is the great Slawomir Idziak, who shot Kieslowski’s Blue and The Double Life of Veronique.
