Neuf jours avant TED2008, le cinéaste David Hoffman a perdu presque tout ce qu'il possédait dans un incendie qui a détruit son foyer, son bureau et 30 ans de collection passionnée. Il revient sur une vie qui a été totalement effacée en un instant — et se tourne vers l'avenir.

In David Hoffman's long film career, he's made documentaries on everything from Amelia Earhardt to B.B. King, from double-dutch jump-roping to F-15 fighter pilots. Lately he's been fascinated with the early space program and our mania for all things Sputnik. Full bio
