Join the Chicago Film Festival and Matt Wolf, director of Spaceship Earth, for a virtual Q&A!

We are excited to welcome the director of NEON’s new release Spaceship Earth for a virtual Q&A in celebration of the film’s release. Stream the film beforehand in our Virtual Cinema then join us for a conversation on our YouTube channel on Thursday, May 14 at 7 pm CT with director Matt Wolf. Come with questions!

Synopsis: 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 reimagine a new world.
