Portland, OR. The Northwest Film Center and the Portland Art Museum present the virtual opening of Spaceship Earth, screening online starting Friday, May 8, for a one week run. Spaceship Earth premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and follows eight people who spent two years inside of a replica of Earth’s ecosystem called Biosphere 2.

About the film: 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 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.

Here’s information about the virtual opening of Spaceship Earth:

Your $3.99 ticket will directly support both NWFC and PAM and we encourage all of our members, staff, and supporters to join us—and spread the word.

At a time when most cinemas are expected to remain shuttered due to the coronavirus pandemic, our plan is to continue bringing new films to the PAM and NWFC audiences in new ways that allow us to follow social distancing rules.

We are proud to partner with NEON, the film production and distribution company that released Oscar winners such as Parasite and I, Tonya, on this innovative strategy to bring Spaceship Earth to our audiences during COVID-19.

We are happy to offer this film at an affordable price because of the economic hardship that Americans are facing during the pandemic.
