One Strange Rock

Please join the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students and Outdoor Action on Monday, March 12 at 7:30pm for an evening with award-winning filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (“mother!,” “Black Swan,” “Requiem for a Dream”) as he presents an advance screening of his latest project for National Geographic: ONE STRANGE ROCK, which looks to unearth the extraordinary story of our planet.  A Q&A will follow the viewing. The event, which will be held in Richardson Auditorium, is free and open to the public.  


Free tickets will be available beginning on Wednesday, March 7, at 12 noon, at the University Ticketing office in the Frist Campus Center or online at while supplies last.  Ticket distribution will continue during normal business hours. For those unable to obtain tickets in advance, there will be a wait line at the event.


On Monday, March 26 at 10/9c, the 10-part cinematic event series, hosted by Academy Award®-nominated actor Will Smith (“Ali,” “Pursuit of Happyness,” “Men in Black I, II, III”),  explores the fragility and wonder of planet Earth, a curiously calibrated speck of a planet in the harsh universe.  Smith contemplates these questions and guides viewers on a full-sensory, unprecedented exploration, bolstered by an elite group of eight astronauts who provide their unique perspectives and relate personal memoirs of the planet seen from a distance.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is an international film competition featuring the world's best footage on mountain subjects. The festival began in 1976 and is held annually on the first weekend in November in Banff, Alberta, Canada. Each year, the festival receives approximately 330 films in the film festival competition. An international film festival jury chooses the best films from the finalists and awards prizes in eight categories: Grand Prize, Climbing, Mountain Sports, Mountain Environment, Mountain Culture, Short Mountain Film, and Feature-Length Mountain Film. Audience members select the winner of the People's Choice Award.
Each night will feature different films; film descriptions for each night will be updated to this Web page.
Sponsored by the the Princeton University Outdoor Action Program.
