Sustainability in space

Inspired by American architect, inventor and futurist Buckminster Fuller's understanding of the Earth as a vulnerable vessel with limited resources hurtling through space, Kevin McMahon's new documentary sees the director travel the world in order to determine how humanity can negotiate a sustainable relationship with the planet. Talking to physicists, astronauts, anthropologists and geologists, he attempts to get to the bottom of how humans affect the Earth and why. Both inspiring and poetic, SPACESHIP EARTH gives much-needed insight into what we need to do to prevent our spaceship from breaking down.
