Ten years after its release, Duncan Jones’ phenomenal debut returns to the big screen – as impressive and thought-provoking as ever. Moon follows the story of Sam, a solitary worker on a lunar mine, counting down the days until he returns to earth and is reunited with his family. However after a serious accident Sam soon discovers he is not alone, causing him to question his sanity, his past and his very existence.

Following the film, Dr Joe Saunders (Durham University) will provide a short talk exploring philosophical themes within the film, as well as exploring the way space is depicted on the big screen.
