Westport Cinema Initiative presents "Saving Hubble"-A film by David Gaynes
Weston native David Gaynes’ documentary about the Hubble Space Telescope and the choice to cancel or extend its mission is screened under the stars. Saving Hubble is a movie about the people of America's fight to save the Hubble Space Telescope from becoming space junk. It is also about the expansion of the universe, the power of images, things in common between figure skating and spacewalking, the Eisenhower Interstate Highway System, God, and the wisdom of cabbies in Nashville.
The evening includes a pre-screening panel and post-screening star-gazing courtesy of The Hubble Road show.
An award-winning short film – an official selection from the Westport Youth Film Festival – will open the evening.
