Disaster Playground

Disaster Playground, a film by Nelly Ben Hayoun, investigates future outer space catastrophes and the procedures in place to manage, assess, and minimalize the risks. The film follows scientists leading the monitoring and deflection of hazardous Near Earth Objects and the real-life procedures in place in the event of an asteroid collision with the earth. Showing the chain of command that runs from NASA and the SETI Institute to the White House and United Nations. Disaster Playground is a real film at the edge of space fiction: space decadence with a cutting edge approach through re-enactment of off-nominal situations by world-renowned space experts at NASA and the SETI Institute. Nick Ballon had the opportunity to travel with the film crew around America and Europe, documenting Nelly Ben Hayoun's quirky and imaginative concept.
