While technological advances have deepened our scientific understanding of the cosmos, the rich artistic tradition of envisioning “what’s out there” continues. These films bring inventive narratives and spellbinding visuals to bear on the mysteries of outer space. From works incorporating scientific data and visualizations to imaginative indulgences, each film is a singular exploration of the drive to understand the unknown.
