Chesley Bonestell: A Brush with the Future
What do the Chrysler Building, the Golden Gate Bridge, the film “Destination Moon” and America’s space program all have in common? They were each touched by the creative vision of a forgotten artist named Chesley Bonestell (1888-1986). His mesmerizing depiction of “Saturn As Seen From Titan” became known as “the painting that launched a thousand careers.”
Told by the people who were influenced by or knew Chesley personally, and punctuated with a rare interview with Chesley himself, this documentary chronicles the extraordinary, nine-decade life of a quiet, artistic visionary, whose beautiful paintings continue to inspire us to reach for the stars.
