Satellite Beach/Videos by Marco Brambilla

with Luke and Andrew Wilson

Run Time: 26 minutes USA Language: English


Satellite Beach follows the unique journey of the Endeavour space shuttle as it travels through the streets of Los Angeles to the California Science Center and the final move of the Atlantis space shuttle to the Kennedy Space Center. Warren Flowers (Luke Wilson), a devoted and unlikely shuttle manager, navigates the missions on his own accord, while the citizens, reporters, and officials are perplexed by his involvement. Winner of Best Live Action Short Film at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

Preceding Satellite Beach, collage video artist Marco Brambilla will screen several of his video art works derived from NASA space footage, including Atlantis (OV-104) and Sea of Tranquility. “I’m fascinated by mixing the nostalgia of the analog age with the promises of today’s technology,” he says of combining found footage sourced in the NASA archive with new computer-generated imagery. “I hope to leave the viewer to decide the value of virtual and physical modes of exploring.”
