A BRUSH WITH THE FUTURE


Film Screenings of "Chesley Bonestell: A Brush with the Future", a feature-length documentary of an amazing man. David Aguilar appears as onscreen commentator to share his insights about knowing and visiting with Chesley at his studio in Carmel, CA. David's space artwork has been deeply influenced by the man known as the "father of space art" -

"Bonestell's art is so significant, there is no need for distracting bells and whistles. Frankly, we'd like to see this film get picked up by American Masters, because it persuasively makes the case that he was one. Enthusiastically recommended." - J.B. UNSEEN FILMS
