In collaboration with One Earth Film Festival, the Adler will be screening The City Dark, an award-winning documentary that provides a fascinating introduction into light pollution and the science of the dark, and offers an exploration of our relationship to the stars.
Is darkness becoming extinct? When filmmaker Ian Cheney moves from rural Maine to New York City and discovers streets awash in light and skies devoid of stars, he embarks on a journey to America’s brightest and darkest corners, asking astronomers, cancer researchers and ecologists what is lost in the glare of city lights. Blending a humorous, searching narrative with poetic footage of the night sky, The City Dark provides a fascinating introduction to the science of the dark and an exploration of our relationship to the stars.
