The Artist & the Astronaut – April 1, 6:30PM at Valley Cinema, 20 Albany Street, Little Falls, NY

An unlikely love story between civil rights activist and artist Pat Musick and Apollo astronaut Jerry Carr highlights the simple connections in life that make us all human. Pat and Jerry  would grow up in the same neighborhood and go to the same schools. Pat would travel thousands of miles and Jerry would travel millions of miles before they would eventually meet each other in Houston, Texas.

The story of the making of this documentary is as unlikely as the story depicted in the film itself. A full time teacher and basketball coach at the urging of his wife decides to make a documentary on a local Vermont couple. He embarked on this journey with no plan or budget. In the next six years, he travelled to nine states, interviewed numerous Apollo Astronauts, their wives, award-winning authors, artists, art historians, and NASA directors of mission control, teamed with music legend, Todd Hobin to provide a story that otherwise would have never been told. The unlikely meeting and incredible life journeys of artist Pat Musick and astronaut Jerry Carr.
