Session sold out.

Presented as part of the 2012 Melbourne International Film Festival, this Fulldome Showcase features two films, Life: A Cosmic Story and Coral: Rekindling Venus. There will be a short intermission between the two films.

Life: A Cosmic Story (2010) – 25 minutes
How did life on Earth begin? This tantalizing question forms the basis of the Morrison Planetarium’s most recent production, Life: A Cosmic Story.

Narrated by Academy Award winner Jodie Foster, the show launches the audience on a journey through time, witnessing key events since the Big Bang that set the stage for life. Visualizations drive the narrative - from the turbulent, star-and planet-forming giant molecular clouds to the microscopic activity of photosynthesis - in what the New York Times calls “a visually spectacular demonstration”.

Named the 2011 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival’s Best Fulldome Program.

Coral: Rekindling Venus (2012) - 45 minutes
An extraordinary journey into a mysterious realm of fluorescent coral reefs, bioluminescent sea creatures and rare marine life, revealing a complex community living in the oceans most threatened by climate change.
