Spaceship Earth

115 mins


When a group of freethinkers came together in the mid-‘60s, they put their collective energy toward projects that challenged the norm and made a difference. They started a theater company and learned to live off the Earth. They built a boat and sailed around the world. And, when faced with the devastating effect of human ignorance on planet Earth, they started their biggest project yet: Biosphere 2, an enclosed ecological system set in Arizona. Within it, various biomes, animals, insects and humans lived for two years — showcasing the delicate relationship between man and environment on a worldwide stage. The result of the project, and the events following, foretell of a battle we face in the world today — man’s scramble for power and money, while Earth hangs in the balance.
