New Film: Earthrise
We are excited to share that our new film Earthrise premiered at Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on April 21, 2018. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 8 mission and the Earthrise photograph, one of the most iconic and reproduced images this century.
The film tells the story of the Earthrise photograph from the perspective of the Apollo 8 astronauts, as they recount their experiences and explore the beauty, awe, and grandeur of the Earth against the blackness of space. The photograph had an everlasting impact on the astronauts and humanity, offering a powerful perspective that transcended national, political, and religious boundaries.
Earthrise will have its online premiere on The New York Times Op-Docs this fall and will be available on our platform. The film will be accompanied by a free curriculum guide which will challenge students' perspectives of our shared home.
Watch the trailer. Also, be on the lookout for information to join the Earthrise screening program!
