What do the Chrysler Building, the Golden Gate Bridge, the film "Destination Moon" and America's space program all have in common? They were each touched by the creative vision of a forgotten artist named Chesley Bonestell (1888-1986). It can be said that Chesley helped get us to the moon not with technology, but with a paintbrush.
His mesmerizing depiction of "Saturn As Seen From Titan" became known as "the painting that launched a thousand careers." Told by the people who were influenced by or knew Chesley personally, and punctuated with rare interview footage of Chesley himself, this feature documentary chronicles the extraordinary, nine-decade life of a quiet, artistic visionary, whose beautiful space art continue to inspire us to reach for the stars. David’s artwork has been deeply influenced by the man he knew, and called his friend. Click here for screening dates
