This critically acclaimed independent science fiction feature is centered on a riveting performance by Sam Rockwell as an astronaut at the end of a three year stint overseeing mining operations on the moon. An unfortunate accident leads to an unexpected discovery, and raises questions about the nature of personal identity and the future of man in an age of increasing dependence on technology. Introduced by Dr. Jim Deutsch of the Smithsonian Institute. This program is offered in collaboration with the International Cinema series.
Dr. Jim Deutsch is a program curator at the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, and an adjunct professor of American Studies at George Washington University in Washington, DC. He has been a regular contributor to programs of the Environmental Film Festival.
