Dir. Andrei Ujică. 1999, 96 mins. Cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev spent ten months aboard the space station Mir, while below him, out of sight, the Soviet Union was disintegrating. Ujică intercuts between the tumult in Moscow and scenes of Krikalev floating in free space to poetically portray a world in transition.

Free with Museum admission.
