Directed by Esther Figueroa. 2019. Jamaica. 115 min.
Fly Me To The Moon is a feature documentary by Jamaican independent filmmaker Esther Figueroa, that takes us on a journey into the unexpected ways we are all connected on Planet Earth, following aluminum – the metal of modernity – around the world and into space. We travel for over one hundred years, visiting places as far flung as the Moon, Jamaica, India, Suriname, Canada, Cuba, Japan, Hungary, Iceland, Australia, Vietnam, and the United States of America. Along the way we encounter human triumphs, technological innovations, multiple wars, societal upheavals, and environmental devastation. And in the urgent here and now of the climate crisis, the film challenges us to think about the consequences of our consumption, reimagine the ways in which we live, and change our material culture and political economy that is destroying the planet we all depend on.
The film is available on our Eventive virtual cinema for 24 hours starting Sunday, February 28 at 10am HST. You can also see the film via the Eventive TV app on your Apple TV or Roku device. Reserve a free virtual ticket HERE.
