“THE must-see documentary for a world living under quarantine.”—Roger Moore, Movie Nation
Spaceship Earth is the true, stranger-than-fiction, adventure of eight visionaries who in 1991 spent two years quarantined inside of a self-engineered replica of Earth’s ecosystem called Biosphere 2. The experiment was a worldwide phenomenon, chronicling daily existence in the face of life threatening ecological disaster and a growing criticism that it was nothing more than a cult. The bizarre story is both a cautionary tale and a hopeful lesson of how a small group of dreamers can potentially re-imagine a new world.
Director Matt Wolf’s (Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project) incredible documentary premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. 2020. U.S., 115 minutes. Recommended for 15+.
