As a new space age dawns, have women come far enough to go farther than they ever have before? This film tells the story of the role women have played in the exploration of Mars.

How Far We’ve Come, How Far We Can Go

Join us for a special evening with the film’s Director Jan Millsapps.  She and others who founded the Charlotte Film Makers, will reunite here for the first time for a bonus presentation of an archival video that appeared on Charlotte’s Channel 42 (WTVI) public access TV station. In the video Mykle Mariette, John Lemmon, Jan Millsapps, Ellis Noell and Concetta Caliendo discuss their group’s activities and show several short films they produced collectively.

*Doors open at 6:30 for a meet and greet.  Following the video screening, Lemmon, Noell, Millsapps and another early Charlotte filmmaker, Darcy Bowman, will discuss early filmmaking in the Charlotte area.

Free!  Seating is first come, first served.  This will not be a ticketed event.
