Eclipse Day: Space Club Movie Screening

  • B Willow 220 West 27th Street Baltimore, MD, 21211 United States (map)

Happy eclipse day! In honor of this 100 year event, join us for our first Space Club meeting. We will be screening Picture of Light, courtesy of our new neighors, Beyond Video. 

BYOB, we'll provide the popcorn! Movie will start at 8:30 and last until about 10pm.

Picture of Light is a mesmerizing tale about a filmmaker's journey to Canada's arctic in search of one of Earth's greatest natural wonder: the Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights. While combining glimpses of the characters who live in this remote environment with the film crew's comic and absurd attempts to deal with the extreme cold, the film reveals the paradoxes involved in trying to capture the spectacular light show of the Northern Lights on celluloid.

Exploring the tension between nature and technology and between science and myth, Peter Mettler's documentary reflects on our desire to capture the wonders of the world on camera, revealing how our increasingly connected world threatens to render obsolete our individual and authentic experiences. 

Also, please bring any spare cash to donate to their soon-to-be-open video shop on Howard Street (near Otto bar)!
