Above and Beyond: NASA'S Journey to Tomorrow

Discussion to follow with director Rory Kennedy

Dir. Rory Kennedy | Documentary | U.S.A. | 90 min.

Six decades after the U.S. government created the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, this new film from MVFF favorite Rory Kennedy (Take Every Wave, Last Days in Vietnam, Ethel) examines the remarkable role NASA has played both in the U.S. and for our planet. It celebrates the agency’s accomplishments, investigates its current initiatives, surveys its future plans. Following NASA to the moon, to Mars, the outer reaches of our solar system, and as it monitors Earth, the film poses the question: will NASA give us the answers we need?




Rory Kennedy is an award-winning producer, director and writer. She is the co-founder of Moxie Firecracker Films, an independent documentary production company that she runs with partner Liz Garbus.
