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 a 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.

“An involving, oddly poignant tale that should have broad appeal to those on the lookout for distinctive documentary features.” — Dennis Harvey, Variety
“It’s all made juicier by a cast of characters — many of them interviewed for the film — so eccentric that any screenwriter would be told to go back and tone them down.” — Brian Lowry, CNN
“A testament to the group of outsiders who did try to grab the world’s attention about climate change through theatrics and to do something substantial about it.” — Monica Castillo, TheWrap
