Astrovision and Helios Planetarium:
Large format film – “Adventures in Wild California”
Large format film “Adventures in Wild California” is now being screened in the Space theatre of Science City. ADVENTURES IN WILD CALIFORNIA is a virtual expedition that sends audiences careening down an icy, steep mountain face with snowboarders; twirling on thermals above the clouds with skysurfers; swimming through the oceans with otters and their surrogate human mother; excavating the very heart of a thirty-story tall Giant Sequoia with botanists and emerging from under the spray of one of California's biggest, surfable waves. The heart-pounding imagery recreates an experience of California's furthest edges few will ever know first-hand.
A 40-minute film exploring the vast beauty, landscapes, and creative spirit that make this state and its people unique. Audiences will be introduced to such adventuresome individuals as Steve Sillett, a biologist studying life in the canopies of California’s giant redwood trees; Sue Campbell, an otter aquarist whose job is to help introduce orphaned sea otter pups back into the wild; skydivers Troy Hartman and Joe Jennings; and two ironworkers who perform the upkeep on the Golden Gate Bridge.
