Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is nearing the completion of his 3-year-long contract with Lunar Industries, mining Earth’s primary source of energy on the dark side of the moon. Alone with only the base’s vigilant computer Gerty (Kevin Spacey) as his sole companion, Bell’s extended isolation has taken its toll. His only link to the outside world comes via satellite messages from his wife and young daughter. He longs to return home, but a terrible accident on the lunar surface leads to a disturbing discovery that contributes to his growing sense of paranoia and dislocation so many miles away from home.
The film will be preceded by a talk from Dr Tony Milligan, teaching fellow in ethics and philosophy of religion at Kings College London, who will explore the morality, ethics and justification for mining the moon.
