The City Dark is an upcoming film that looks at light pollution, and the disappearance of the nighttime. Filmmaker Ian Cheney’s curiosity about this phenomenon was first piqued after noticing the lack of star visibility in the New York City night sky. Asking the question – “why do we need the night?” led Cheney on a journey to both create a living portrait of the world’s cities at night, and examine what kind of issues (such as the energy crisis and disrupted ecosystems) might be caused by this over-illumination. The film is currently in post production, but is scheduled be out soon.
