Jonny Leahan and co-director Miguel Drake-McLaughlin’s latest project, feature documentary “Sky Line”, premiered yesterday at Doc NYC. The film is a production of our friends at Cowboy Bear Ninja.

In his 22nd century-set 1979 novel, The Fountains of Paradise, noted sci-fi author Arthur C Clarke imagined an elevator connecting Earth with an orbiting satellite, eliminating the need for costly and environmentally destructive rockets. While scientists have considered such a project, they have been hampered by the lack of sufficiently advanced technology… until now. Sky Line follows a group of scientists and entrepreneurs as egos collide in an attempt to reach for the stars.

You can also see the film via FilmBuff VOD starting on November 20th.
