Filmmaker David Hoffman deelt materiaal van zijn avondvullende documentaire Sputnik Mania, die toont hoe de lancering van Sputnik in 1957 door de Sovjetunie leidde tot zowel de ruimte- als de wapenwedloop en tot het populair worden van wetenschappen en wiskunde in het onderwijs.

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
