A Life's Work


About the Film

You are reading a blog that focuses on the making and the makers of  A Life’s Work, a documentary about people who are engaged in projects or research that they may not see completed in their lifetime.

Subjects interviewed so far include:

Paolo Soleri, architect and guiding force behind Arcosanti, an “urban laboratory” in the middle of the Arizona desert. He has been involved in the construction of Arcosanti since the early 1970s.

Dr. Jill Cornell Tarter, Director, Center for SETI Research, SETI Institute. Dr. Tarter has been involved in the scientific search for extraterrestrial intelligence since the 1970s. She was the basis for the Elie Arroway character in Carl Sagan’s science fiction novel, Contact, played by Jodie Foster in the Robert Zemeckis film.

The Milarchs, father and son tree farmers and co-founders of the Champion Tree Project, who clone old-growth trees for long-term reforestation projects.
