Chesley Bonestell: A Brush With The Future

Edwards Big Newport | 1h 35m 40s

Date: Tuesday, May 1, Time: 7:30 pm to 9:05 pm

Behind every architect and builder is an artist who takes designs and ideas, morphing them into beautiful images for everyone to understand. Chesley Bonestell was this artist, yet very few know his name. He worked on the Golden Gate Bridge and the Chrysler Building, as a matte artist on famous movies like Citizen Kane, and his mesmerizing paintings of planets and star systems helped jumpstart America’s space program. His iconic “Saturn As Seen From Titan”, became known as “the painting that launched a thousand careers.” Discover the power of the forgotten man whose art inspired Americans to conquer “The Final Frontier”.

 

Q&A with Director, Producer, and Screenwriter Douglas Stewart, Rocket Scientist Rocco Lardiere, Co-Producer Ron Miller, and Co-Producer Melvin Schuetz following the screening.
