Spaceship Earth

In 1991 eight capable men and women were sealed into Biosphere 2, an airtight terrarium in the Arizona desert containing a miniature replica of Earth’s environment. Funded by a Texas oil tycoon hoping to acquire licensable technologies for space colonization, the mission of Biosphere 2 was to maintain an isolated, sustainable environment for two years. It was a mission that became a dystopian simulation of ecological crisis, after which a corporate consultant took over the venture—and disappeared the data. The investors designed Biosphere 2 to generate a lot of press, but little was revealed about the people who created it. Using archival material and present-day interviews with surviving Biospherians, director Matt Wolf brings us this spirited documentary that follows the gregarious and visionary countercultural collective over half of a century, as they conducted experiments around the globe leading up to Biosphere 2. If SPACESHIP EARTH is a cautionary tale about the forces that threaten our planet, it is also an inspirational tribute to what a small creative group can achieve. — Sundance Film Festival
