Through the Lens: Bluespace

Dec 6, 2016

Tuesday, we continue our Through the Lens series with a poetic and provocative documentary film about terraforming. That’s the idea of altering another planet and making it suitable for life. Director Ian Cheney’s film “Bluespace” is a kind of thought experiment, asking what it would take to reshape Mars in Earth’s image. In the end, it’s less about the red planet than it is about our own very blue planet. As Cheney says, “The more you study other worlds, the more we come to understand our own.”

Join us for a free screening of Ian Cheney’s film Bluespace on Wednesday, December 14 at 7:00 p.m., at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center [map]. Doug Fabrizio will host a post-film Q&A with Cheney. It’s all part of our Through the Lens series in partnership with Utah Film Center. DETAILS

Ian Cheney an Emmy-nominated and Peabody Award-winning filmmaker. His films include King Corn, The City Dark, and The Search for General Tso, and his latest, Bluespace.
