Trailer | The critically acclaimed documentary ‘Spaceship Earth’ explores the controversial 1991 quarantine experiment

The highly anticipated documentary that aired at Sundance Film Festival in January, ‘Spaceship Earth’ will finally be released next month to the public in a series of experimental digital releases and activations.

The feature tells the story if eight visionaries who embark on a two-year experiment to quarantine themselves inside “Biosphere 2″ – a self-engineered replica of Earth’s ecosystem. The “biospherians” were criticized and ridiculed as a ‘space cult’ but what they achieved and set out to learn seems more important now than ever as most of the world is confined to self-isolation.

Neon – which also distributed the recent Best Picture winner, ‘Parasite’ – acquired the documentary in February and plans to release the feature next month on its partner’s platform ‘Hulu’ on 8 May as well as other digital platforms like iTunes and Amazon. Neon has also partnered up with a list of theatres, bookstores, museums, drives and non-profits to screen ‘Spaceship Earth’ in a socially distant manner.
