Environmental Film Festival: SHORTS PROGRAM - EARTH IN FRAME
Add to my Calendar Get DirectionsPrint This Event
A Year along the Geostationary Orbit Himawari 8, Japan's most advanced meteorological satellite, travels 35,786 km above Earth, at more than 11000 km/h. It observes the Eastern Hemisphere day and night. For one year we look through the eyes of the distant observer. From solstice to solstice, from pole to pole, from storm to storm, we watch Earth's beauty and fragility, weather's wonders, forces, and disasters. From space, it all looks miraculous. Directed by Felix Dierich (Germany, 2018, 16 min.) How the World Looks Now This narrative short explores the poetic effects of NASA's Apollo 8 mission and its 1968 Earthrise photo on the life of a retired English teacher -- and on the astronauts themselves. This was the first time in human history we had an image of the Earth from outer space. "We were the first humans to see the world in its majestic totality," as one of the astronauts said, "and we felt small and immensely large at the same time." Directed by Guy Reed& Katie Cokinos (USA, 2018, 10 min.) Earthrise Told solely by the Apollo 8 astronauts, this film celebrates the first image captured of the Earth from space, in 1968. The iconic image had a powerful impact on the astronauts and the world, offering a perspective that transcended national, political, and religious boundaries. Fifty years later, this shift still challenges us to reflect on the Earth as a shared home. The astronauts recount their memories of the beauty, awe, and grandeur of the Earth against the blackness of space. Directed by Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee (USA, 2018, 30 min.) Post-screening discussion feat. Katie Cokinos (Director, How the World Looks Now).
