Red Heaven, an official SXSW 2020 selection, is a documentary film from filmmakers Lauren DeFilippo and Katherine Gorringe. the documentary follows six people who live for a year on "Mars," a secluded NASA experiment in Hawai'i made to simulate the isolation, terrain, and life that would be expected from a human on Mars. The goal of the experiment? To see what happens to humans when they are isolated from Earth. The subjects film themselves over the course of the mission and capture what happens when people are pushed to their limits in an exploration of our most fundamental needs as human beings. Read Heaven intimately captures the crew as they're pushed to their limits in an exploration of our most fundamental needs as human beings. From near injury to science experiments, physical milestones, and suppressing boredom we get the full details of what happened over the lifetime of the experiment.
