part of Orbit(Film)
For thousands of years, humanity has watched the sun with a mixture of fear and awe, believing without knowing why, that our lives depend on its mysterious undulations. The sun has changed, our sense of wonder has not. Now more than ever, we must look at the sun.
Rooftop Films and Cinemad present a collaborative, featurelength omnibus movie Orbit(Film) about our solar system where every planet is represented by a short film. Each film is made by a different acclaimed filmmaker artist, who deals with the science of outer space through creative and emotional storytelling and visual poetry.
