The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is pleased to present a screening of “Blast!” as a part of the On Screen/In Person tour. The screening will take place at 7:00 pm, Fri, April 20, in the upstairs screening room at Movies at Midway.
This is a great opportunity to meet five-time Emmy winner director Paul Devlin. “Blast” is a suspenseful documentary that follows the story of Paul Devlin’s brother, Mark Devlin PhD, as he leads a tenacious team of scientists hoping to figure out how all the galaxies formed by launching a revolutionary new telescope under a NASA high-altitude balloon.
Their adventure takes them from Arctic Sweden to Inuit polar bear country in Canada, where catastrophic failure forces the team to try all over again on the desolate ice in Antarctica. The film also explores the crazy life of scientists, their professional obsessions, personal and family sacrifices, as well as philosophical and religious perspectives, all of which give emotional resonance to a suspenseful story of space exploration. The exciting journey seeks to answer humankind's most basic question, How did we get here? [2008, USA, Runtime: 78 min., Not rated]
Tim Teeman of “Time Entertainment” says “For those of us with bad memories of physics and chemistry class, it (the film) was inspirational.”
Following the screening, director Paul Devlin will be joined by Associate Professor Douglas Miller (University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment) to discuss the film’s artistic and scientific contributions.
Tickets are $4 for Film Society members and $5 for future members. Tickets can be purchased online at www.rehobothfilm.com, by calling 302-645-9095, ext 1, or visiting the RBFS office, Mon-Fri, 9:00 am- 4:30 pm. Please note that tickets are non-refundable.
Rehoboth Beach Film Society is pleased to be selected by the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation to be a host site for the first year of the On Screen/In person film touring program. The goal of the program is to bring the vision of some of the country’s best independent filmmakers to a broad audience throughout the mid-Atlantic region, especially in communities with limited access to their work. On Screen/In Person will tour six new independent, American films, including animation, documentary, experimental, and narrative work accompanied by the filmmaker. On Screen/In person is made possible by the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts’ Regional Touring Program and the Delaware Division of the Arts.
The mission of the RBFS is to promote the art of film and, through outreach initiatives, to entertain, educate, and enrich the cultural life of local and extended communities. The Film Society sponsors monthly screenings, special events, and the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival (November 7 -11, 2012). The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is funded, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
