Tomorrow is National Moon Day, a day that commemorates the Apollo 11 moon landing, when Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s first took “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
(Click here to check out the 1969 moon landing.)
Honor this historic event with Planetary, directed by Guy Reid. The film, which premiered at the 2015 Festival, is a cross-continental cinematic journey that explores our cosmic origins and our future as a species. Imagery from NASA Apollo missions is interwoven with visions of the Milky Way, Buddhist monasteries in the Himalayas, and the cacophonous sounds of downtown Tokyo and Manhattan, in order to explore how our worldview is profoundly affecting life on our planet.
This is your chance to travel through the far reaches of the universe, without ever leaving your seat.
Not bad for a Wednesday, eh?
