Watch a ScreenTalk with Spaceship Earth's director, Matt Wolf, in conversation with The Architecture Foundation's Justin Jaeckle.

In 1991 the BIOSPHERE 2 was created and became home to eight humans for two years in an experiment that was a worldwide phenomenon. Spaceship Earth explores the daily life of the BIOSPHERE 2 inhabitants as they try to prove what could be done to change the world in the face of life-threatening climate change.

Whilst they faced growing criticism that they were no more than a cult, this curious story shows how a committed, small group of people go to extreme lengths to imagine a new world.
