The City Dark

After moving to New York City from rural Maine, filmmaker Ian Cheney asks a simple question, “What do we lose, when we lose the night?”. Blending a humorous tone with cutting-edge science and poetic footage of the night sky, Cheney unravels the myriad implications of a globe glittering with lights — including increased breast cancer rates, disrupted ecosystems, and a generation of kids without a glimpse of the universe above.

Featuring astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, author Ann Druyan and NASA astronaut Don Pettit, THE CITY DARK is the definitive story of earth’s disappearing night sky.
