Spaceship Earth

Spaceship Earth

In 1991, a collaboration between a group of hippies, performance artists, and scientists resulted in Biosphere 2: a futuristic structure designed to house a perfect replica of Earth’s ecosystem. This documentary follows the development of this bizarre project that was met with controversy yet can also be seen as progressive in light of the climate ideas thirty years later. However, it begs the question: is this ecological activism at work or just plain entertainment?
