Above & Below

Nicolas Steiner’s documentary is about living way, way out there “from Mars to Earth, and beneath its crust”. Five survivors hustle their way through a world that feels apocalyptic: Rick, Cindy and Godfather Lalo in the subterranean network of storm drains under the shiny strip of Las Vegas; Dave amid the lonesome beauty of the Californian desert; and April, simulating a Mars mission in full astronaut gear in arid Utah. Funny, moving and shot in beautiful widescreen, this is a glimpse of places that might be unfamiliar, but also of people not very different from ourselves. Swiss Embassy

Followed by a Q&A. Tickets available from the Rich Mix website here.
