Space Within Reach

Break away from your earthly worries and explore the mysterious corners of the infinite universe. On the occasion of the anniversary of the first man stepping on the surface of the Moon, we bring you a selection of documentaries inspired by the universe.


What is it like when zero gravity is not a mere attraction for a few minutes but an inherent part of your life at a space station? What will a stay in space do to your psyche? Will seeing 16 sunrises and sunsets each day help? You will learn all that in the documentary I Am in Space showing authentic scenes of French astronaut Jean-Francoise Clervoy. If you come to like it in space, you can peek inside the world of cosmic tourism in Space Tourists by Christian Frei. In Desert Haze, you will immerse yourselves in the American desert which looks like an abandoned planet at first glance. There, director Sofie Benoot gradually reveals the sometimes strange traces of human existence.

Have a safe flight and enjoy your interplanetary vacation.
