In honor of Earth Day, join us on Zoom for a special screening of the film Earthrise, followed by a conversation with the award-winning filmmaker and Emergence Magazine founder and editor Emmanuel Vaughn-Lee. This event is co-produced by the Dance Palace and Emergence Magazine.
Earthrise tells the story of the first image captured of the Earth from space in 1968. Told solely by the Apollo 8 astronauts, the film recounts their experiences and memories and explores 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. Told 50 years later, Earthrise compels us to remember this shift and to reflect on the Earth as a shared home.
