Netflix’s Flat Earth documentary Behind The Curve follows people who believe the Earth is flat (Picture: Netflix/Delta-V Productions)Netflix documentary Behind The Curve follows a community that staunchly believes the Earth is flat.
Featured in the doc are prominent Flat Earthers including Mark Sargent, Patricia Steer and Jeran Campanella.
Sargent claims those that disagree with him are being ‘fooled’ into thinking the Earth is round.
Comparing it to Jim Carrey movie The Truman Show, in which one man finds out his whole life is actually a reality TV show, he said: ‘Imagine The Truman Show as a Hollywood stage 100 miles wide.
‘If you built a stage 1000 miles wide how many people could you fool besides just Truman?’
Behind The Curve, originally released in 2018, made headlines when one ‘flat Earther’ accidentally shattered his own theory with an experiment involving a torch.
But that’s not the only eyebrow-raising part of the film.
