    • Excerpt: The documentary is an awe-inspiring account of what can be accomplished when humans cooperate on a common cause… an incredible, decades long journey taken by an impressive and unique cast of characters. Go along for the ride.

    • Excerpt: Was Biosphere 2 scientific adventure or eco-entertainment? This is a gripping portrait of the billionaire’s folly/performance-art project, a hippie SF soap opera with unsettling resonance for today.

    • Excerpt: Wolf renders [those bigger and more crucial] truths as bit players in the background of a puff piece about John Allen and the Synergia Ranch.

    • Excerpt: Filmmaker Matt Wolf paints in a sympathetic light the oddball collective who made the 1991 Biosphere 2 project a reality, but he also digs deeper into their unique approach to life. Spaceship Earth is a fascinating study of both recent history and the most eclectic group of people you’re likely ever to meet.
