Summary
"After moving to New York City from rural Maine, filmmaker Ian Cheney asks a simple question, "Do we need the stars?" 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. ...
