A Beautiful Planet
A Beautiful Planet, playing at the Bristol IMAX® Omnitheater and narrated by Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence, gives moviegoers a never-before-seen view of Earth from space and provides an enhanced understanding of our planet and human impact on it.
The film features stunning footage of our planet that was captured by astronauts on the International Space Station. Among the scenes shown on film are the deforestation of Madagascar and large swaths of the Amazon, nighttime fracking fires in the Gulf of Mexico, and glacial melting in Greenland.
Filmmakers Toni Myers, who served as director, producer, writer and editor, and James Neihouse, director of photography, reunited for this film. They last worked together on Hubble, a space IMAX film that takes moviegoers on an unprecedented voyage through distant galaxies to explore the grandeur and mystery of our celestial surroundings.
A teachers guide and several activities are available for this movie.
