Long before satellites would journey to planets and deep-space telescopes would photograph distant galaxies, there was an artist whose dazzling visions of planets and stars would capture the imagination of all who beheld them. Before that, he was an architect working on projects like the Chrysler Building and the Golden Gate Bridge. He would later become a matte painter in Hollywood working on films like Citizen Kane and Destination Moon. Who was this remarkable man? His name was Chesley Bonestell (1888-1986).
Chesley Bonestell’s mesmerizing depiction of “Saturn As Seen From Titan” became known as “the painting that launched a thousand careers.” Told by the many people who were influenced by Chesley Bonestell or knew him personally and punctuated with rare interview footage of the artist himself, the documentary compellingly chronicles the life of a quiet, artistic visionary, whose architecture and space art continue to inspire us to reach for the stars.
“There isn’t an artist that’s painting today in the science fiction fantasy field who didn’t start with Chesley Bonestell,” says legendary science fiction author Ray Bradbury in the first film ever made about the man dubbed “The Father of Space Art.”
Following both screenings, a very special audience Q&A will take place with Producer/Director/Writer Douglass M. Stewart, Jr. and one of the film's Co-Producers, Melvin Schuetz who is also a Bonestell historian and author of “A Chesley Bonestell Space Art Chronology.” Mr. Schuetz, along with renowned space artist and author of more than fifty books about art, science and space, co-producer Ron Miller, collaborated with Frederick C. Durant III to produce the Hugo Award-winning book, “The Art of Chesley Bonestell.” The Jean Cocteau Cinema will also be featuring an impressive mini-exhibition of Mr. Miller's space art in their lobby/gallery area for both screening events.
Presented by the Greater Santa Fe Fireshed Coalition:
The rise of highly destructive megafires -- wildfires over 100,000 acres -- has become one of today's most pressing and complex problems, threatening our communities, homes, businesses and even our very way of life. Facing the reality of this issue is daunting, but like all wicked problems, through education and action we can change the way fire comes to our forests and communities.
The Era of Megafires is a 60-minute multi-media presentation that combines the research of Dr. Paul Hessburg (Pacific Northwest Research Station, U.S. Forest Service) with the visual storytelling of award-winning film company, North 40 Productions. It’s presented in the form of fast-moving, short, topic-based talks interspersed with compelling video vignettes and animations.
The movie will be followed by a panel discussion with local experts to talk about the risk of wildfire here in Santa Fe, the impacts fire could have and what the Santa Fe Fireshed Coalition partners are doing to prepare.

In the midst of religious intolerance and extremism, one religion-the Bahá'í Faith-offers a path toward world peace by advocating the oneness of humanity's major religions. Now, this groundbreaking documentary tells the amazing, little-known story of the origins of the Bahá'í Faith. The Gate: Dawn of the Bahá'í Faith recounts the founding of this new world religion in Persia by a Prophet known as The Báb. In the mid-1800s, Jews, Christians and Muslims alike were awaiting the imminent arrival of a Divine Messenger. Beginning in 1844, the Báb's message, which included then-controversial ideas like the oneness of major religions and the empowerment of women, spread like wildfire across the region amidst this religious climate. However, His groundbreaking new message presented a threat to religious and political leaders of the time, resulting in relentless persecution of the Báb and His followers. The Báb's message ultimately triumphed with a growing number of faithful; today, the Bahá'í religion is practiced throughout the world by over five million people. Combining dramatic reenactments with interviews of renowned historians, religious scholars and Bahá'í Faith experts, The Gate: Dawn of the Bahá'í Faith celebrates the brief, exciting life of a prophet and the indelible impact His message continues to have on the world today.
