THE CITY DARK chronicles the disappearance of darkness. The film follows filmmaker and amateur astronomer Ian Cheney, who discovers an urban sky almost completely devoid of stars. Posing a deceptively simple question—“What do we lose, when we lose the night?”—the film leads viewers on a quest to understand how light pollution affects people and the planet. THE CITY DARK shines new light on the meaning of the dark. It is a MUST SEE!
