Dan Streible and Walter Forsberg co-produced this archival treasure, that revives 20th Century celluloid anomalies on space exploration. We’ll be showing the best selection from the release, including Lillian Schwartz‘ 1971 Cosmos, offered here in glorious 3D thanks to the dimensional magic of ChromaDepth glasses!
PLUS the premiere of Aleksei Fedorchenko‘s First on the Moon, a recent Russian pseudo-doc feature mixing archival and live-action footage towards a faux history of Stalin‘s ’30s space program!
