Espace pour la vie invites the whole family to embark on an adventure at the Planétarium. With the film Total Eclipse: Chasers of the Lost Sleep, viewers set off in pursuit of a total eclipse to help out Kentucky, the sleepless hen... Because animals fall asleep during an eclipse!

This original Planétarium production, produced by Collectif Les Macronautes, in collaboration with Après Minuit, and Parafilms, not only introduces viewers to the different types of eclipses, but also helps them understand the phenomenon. A must-see film to help you prepare for the exceptional eclipse that will take place in Montréal on April 8, 2024.
