Release Date: April/2020

The true, stranger-than-fiction, the adventure of eight visionaries who in 1991 spent two years quarantined inside of a self-engineered replica of Earth’s ecosystem called BIOSPHERE 2. The experiment was a world-renowned phenomenon, chronicling daily existence in the face of a life-threatening ecological disaster in the face of a growing criticism that it was nothing more than a cult. ​ The bizarre story is both a cautionary tale and a hopeful lesson of how a small group of dreamers can potentially reimagine a new world. The film had its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, where it was nominated for the grand jury prize.
