A cinematic ode to our closest celestial companion, To The Moon draws on the power of cinematic montage to take the viewer on a beguiling night-walk through the moonlit imagination.

Director Tadhg O’Sullivan explores our relationship with the moon, its pull, its mystery and the multitude of meanings that we have projected onto it. Moving through tales of love, songs of longing, myths of madness, dreams of innocence and the nightmare of colonialism, he weaves together archive material from hundreds of films, with specially commissioned, original 16mm moonlit material filmed by cinematographers across five continents

To The Moon steps lightly through the ages and ideas that people have drawn from the moon to meditate on our ever-present satellite, and life under its mysterious eye.

 

The Bertha DocHouse screen is currently operating at 80% of its seating capacity. That means you will never be in a screening where every seat is occupied, and if, after the film has begun, you would be more comfortable in another unoccupied seat, you are welcome to move. We appreciate you being considerate of your fellow audience members and masks are encouraged. Happy viewing!
