Anticipating Atlantis is an experimental documentary film.

Anticipating Atlantis is an experimental film documenting our personal road-trip across the United States to witness the 2011 launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis, the last space shuttle launch in American history.

Our itinerary took us “backwards” along the iconic American road trip path from west to east tracing the production routes enlisted in the creation of the Space Shuttle.

Bringing together  audio, scale models, interviews, photographs, and found footage such as NASA training animations, (gained through unexpected and significant access to NASA’s shuttle support teams and their facilities), the film weaves a trip through “space” that is at once physical, historical and psychological.

A feature length version of Anticipating Atlantis is slated for completion by the end of 2013.
