Trailer for the Sundance Hit ‘Another Earth’ – said to be the next ‘Moon’
Another Earth had its World Premiere at Sundance this year, and critics and fans alike all walked out praising the film as the next Moon. The indie low budget sci-fi feature comes from Mike Cahill, whose background comes largely from documentaries with National Geographic, while his co-conspirator, Brit Marling, worked as an investment-banking analyst before taking a sabbatical to co-direct the Havana-based doc Boxers and Ballerinas. The two wrote the screenplay for Another Earth with Cahill directing, producing, shooting and editing while Marling acts as his co-producer and star. Alice was lucky enough to see the secret screening over at SXSW 2011, and wrote up a really great review which you can read here.
In Another Earth, Rhoda Williams (Brit Marling), a bright young woman accepted into MIT’s astrophysics program, aspires to explore the cosmos. A brilliant composer, John Burroughs (William Mapother), has just reached the pinnacle of his profession and is about to have a second child. On the eve of the discovery of a duplicate Earth, tragedy strikes and the lives of these strangers become irrevocably intertwined.
