Director Esther Figueroa is scheduled to be present.
This work-in-progress screening will be the first public presentation of the film and will be followed by a discussion with environmentalist filmmaker Figueroa.
The feature-length documentary Fly Me to the Moon focuses on the Caribbean landscape, where bauxite has been mined for the advancement of space travel and other modern aspects of life for more than 100 years. Through archival footage and interviews of Jamaican farmers, activists, and politicians, the film shows the legacy of toxic waste and social injustice that continues to haunt the region today.
