Orbit(Film) Circulating in July

Orbit(Film), a whimsical and scientific omnibus of short films about our solar system, commissioned and created by Cinemad and Rooftop Films, is landing in Portland, Chicago and San Francisco in July.

Mike Plante (Cinemad) and Mark Elijah Rosenberg (Rooftop Films) commissioned acclaimed filmmakers to each make a film about a planet, dealing with the science of outer space through creative and emotional storytelling and visual poetry. Some or all of the original source material comes from NASA footage, reinterpreted by each filmmaker to make a portrait of the respective planet, so that the avant garde of art may inspire the avant garde of science.

The program is currently touring the world, screening at theaters, microcinemas, film festivals, planetariums and more. Here are the details about some upcoming shows on your planet:
