Rekindling Venus: In Plain Sight
Director: Lynette Wallworth
- 2013 Sundance Film Festival
Inspired by the first collaboration among the international science community to witness the celestial transit of Venus in 1761, Lynette Wallworth’s visually stunning Coral: Rekindling Venus is an augmented-reality and full-dome planetarium presentation designed to nurture an emotional connection between a global audience and the planet’s endangered coral reefs. Presented in a 10-seat planetarium at New Frontier, Coral: Rekindling Venus will also be shown in Salt Lake City’s Clark Planetarium, New York City’s Hayden Planetarium, and numerous planetariums across the nation. This epic project features original deep-sea photography, augmented-reality artwork, and music by Antony and the Johnsons.
