NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC: FOCUS ON OUR WORLD

The National Geographic Society has been exploring and protecting the planet since 1888, and television’s National Geographic Channel continues to promote the power of science, exploration and storytelling to change the world. ONE STRANGE ROCK is the extraordinary story of why life as we know it exists on Earth, brought into perspective by the only people to have left it behind – astronauts. This 10-part series from acclaimed filmmaker Darren Aronofsky and award-winning producer Jane Root brings cameras where they’ve never been before, having filmed in 45 countries, on six continents and from outer space on the International Space Station.

Drawing from never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for more than 50 years, JANE profiles pioneering chimpanzee researcher Jane Goodall. Pioneers of a different sort are the focus of LIFE BELOW ZERO; the popular National Geographic Channel series follows six people battling the elements while living in the wilds of Alaska. These free screenings are accompanied by two nights of theatrical features exploring similar terrain. THE RIGHT STUFF chronicles the beginnings of the space race and the daredevil test pilots who ultimately became the first American astronauts. In GORILLAS IN THE MIST, Sigourney Weaver stars as primatologist Dian Fossey, who became a leading conservationist through years studying the mountain gorillas of Rwanda.

Series compiled by Gwen Deglise and Stephanie Montgomery. Program notes by John Hagelston.
