Earthrise is Coming to Philadelphia!

Favorite This Blog

We're excited to share that our film Earthrise, by director Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee, will be screening at the Philadelphia Film Center on June 24th during the ISTE conference!

Earthrise tells the story of humanity's first journey beyond Earth's orbit in 1968. Told solely by the Apollo 8 astronauts, the 30-minute film recounts their experiences and memories while exploring the beauty, awe, and grandeur of the Earth against the blackness of space. This iconic image had a powerful impact on the astronauts and the world, offering a perspective that transcended national, political, and religious boundaries. This year marks the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo missions.

Join us for an engaging post-screening discussion. We'll discuss the impacts the Earthrise photograph continues to have on society and education in the sciences, social sciences, and the arts. Student media will also be shared. Confirmed panelists include:

    Rachel Connolly—Director of STEM education at WGBH and PBS Learning Media
    Alex Young—Solar astrophysicist and Associate Director for Science in the Heliophysics Science Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center
    Louis Massiah—Filmmaker, Founder and Executive Director of Scribe Media Center
    Cleary Vaughan-Lee—Executive Director of the Global Oneness Project
