DARK SKY LAND is a New Mexico based transdisciplinary nigh sky ecology conservation movement.  

A documentary film about a community effort to protect a 100-mile astronomical dark sky corridor from light pollution. It takes place in a landscape of natural darkness, in one of the darkest regions remaining in the Northern Hemisphere -  An insightful look at the hidden impact of light pollution’s existential threat to the environment, astronomy, human health, and nocturnal creatures. A modern-day breathtaking and intriguing vogage into the cosmos and the natural world. An interstellar archive of night sky ecology, human curiosity, resilience, wildlife and land preservation in an era of planetary catasthrophies.
