DOC NYC Co-Presents with Rooftop Films: A documentary that focuses on the role of water as a potential threat or hope for our existence. A creative expedition to Earth and Mars that questions our future relationship with the natural world.
Bluespace (Ian Cheney | USA | 70 min.)
World Premiere: Without water, there is no life. Bluespace sets out on a creative expedition to two planets: Earth, where rising seas threaten our existence, and Mars, whose canals and ice offer science-fiction authors and astrobiologists the promise of terraforming and colonization. As climate and food scientists, riverkeepers and Sandy survivors explore the challenges facing waterfront cities like New York and Venice, Ian Cheney questions our future relationship with the natural world as one of potential lifesaving cooperation or ill-fated attempts at domination.
