Untitled Film About Light Pollution And The Disappearing Dark (Maine/Brooklyn | 70 min.)

When a filmmaker and amateur astronomer moves into his apartment in New York, he climbs atop his Brooklyn rooftop to survey the night sky. But bathed in its glow of orange streetlights, the City That Never Sleeps has only a dozen stars to see. What begins as a disappointing autumn evening becomes a journey to answer a simple question: do we need the dark? From Mauna Kea to Death Valley, this feature documentary explores the world after dusk, capturing a planet increasingly shrouded in light. Astronomers, ecologists, cancer patients and Boy Scouts contribute unique perspectives on what's lost in the glare of city lights. A special work- in-progress screening featuring stunning astrophotography, lively animation and an original soundtrack by The Fishermen Three.
