Centered around an epic scale model of the solar system designed by the artist Oliver Jeffers with scientist Professor Stephen Smart, Our Place in Space is a three-dimensional sculpture trail, interactive AR app and exciting learning and events programme that will run all across Northern Ireland in summer 2022.

As part of Docs Ireland, Oliver Jeffers has selected his favourite documentary – Apollo 11. Oliver will introduce the film.

“With a rare match of stunning 60’s film footage and over 11,000 hours of audio recordings heard over the waves at the time… I find Apollo 11 breathtaking… I find it painstakingly emphatic. It’s a beautiful film that showcases an emotional human crescendo of the greatest engineering achievement of the modern era – one that I believe has set the poetic tone of perspective ever since.”

Another legendary space documentary, perhaps the best short documentary of all time – Powers of Ten, directed by Charles and Ray Eames, will also be screened.  CREDIT: Screened by permission © Eames Office, LLC (eamesoffice.com). All rights reserved.
