This updated, complete production encompasses 35 short films and artistic biographies. Roberto’s newest additions to earth.sky include transmedia impressions of Claude Elwood Shannon, one of America’s greatest mathematicians and cryptographers; Mary Edmonia Lewis, an African-American sculptor who rose to fame after the Civil War era; George Thorndike Angell, a philanthropist and co-founder of the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals; Dorothea Lynde Dix, a nineteenth-century crusader for the mentally ill; Gaetane Aline Scouras, an entrepreneur who also held multiple patents for her work in telecommunications technology; and Pamela Gail Dempsey, a modern-day attorney who advocated for the rights of abused and neglected children; and extended visual/aural explorations of Mount Auburn’s landscape, horticulture and trees.
