Directed by Matt Wolf, 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. Immediately following the film will be a pre-recorded panel with the film’s director, Matt Wolf and producer Stacey Reiss moderated by Elliot Gerson, Executive Vice President of the Aspen Institute.
