Movie Description:
The true, stranger-than-fiction, adventure of eight visionaries who in 1991 spent two years quarantined inside of a self-engineered replica of Earth's ecosystem called Biosphere 2. The experiment was a worldwide phenomenon, chronicling daily existence in the face of life threatening ecological disaster and a growing criticism that it was nothing more than a cult. The bizarre story is both a cautionary tale and a hopeful lesson of how a small group of dreamers can potentially re-imagine a new world.

A documentary showing what real human compassion is is about.

Biosphere 2 was never a concept on how to make life in outer space profitable, it was to show how to achieve sustainability and what challenges might exist for colonies off planet Earth. It saddens me to see the negative reviews from people who further prove the movie's plot that greed and politics are killing the scientific community. I remember growing up and watching the experiment go live on national TV. I have visited Biosphere 2 on multiple occasions and it is truly a technological, architectural, and scientific marvel. To understand how people with no agenda, other than creating a sustainable habitat, and no formal credentials in the scientific community created something that exists 30 years later and is instrumental to the scientific community, you must learn their back story and live through their eyes. This movie proves you don't need to have years of experience to contribute to the scientific community. Science is the pursuit and application of knowledge and understanding of the natural and social world following a systematic methodology based on evidence. By definition, these free thinkers, no matter how cult-like or hippie you believe they are, were the visionaries of science. Biosphere 2 is a true contribution to science and the study of our earth and is just as important as research conducted on the ISS.

Manson cult without the murders

Laughable hippie nonsense by privileged white kids, why did they all have silly nick names? all part of the cult. Did not get all the way through this embarrassing self indulgent mess, rather like their isolation. Pointless waste of time.

Like a forgotten dream

I remember hearing about this as a teenager, and about how it failed in some nonspecific manner. How wrong. How nice to unmake a memory.

This is a remarkable film about a remarkable human story. It is well made and engaging, whatever your feelings are for the characters and their doings.

This was not a technical experiment, just as our life on Biosphere 1 is not. It was, and is, a human one. And if you make it to the end of the film you will understand why the experiment was a resounding success. May ours be as well.
