Film description

10 years after its release, Duncan Jones' phenomenal debut Moon returns to the big screen – as impressive and thought-provoking as ever.

The film follows the story of Sam, a solitary worker on a lunar mine, counting down the days until he is reunited with his wife and young daughter. However after Sam's health takes a turn for the worst, he soon discovers an unlikely guest, which causes him to question his sanity, his past and his very existence.

Following the film, Dr Joe Saunders (Durham University) will provide a short talk exploring philosophical themes within the film, as well as exploring the way space is depicted on the big screen.
