The One-Way Ticket 12.29” , Joseph Popper
Today we find our frontiers for manned exploration and adventure into the unknown on the brink of exhaustion. Out of this predicament, The One Way Ticket proposes to send one person on a voyage into deep space from where they will not return. The notion of not coming back opens up an exceptional scenario, so far unprecedented in the history of human space travel.
Campo del cielo 5.14″, Katie Paterson
A large Campo del Cielo meteorite, which has been travelling through space and time for over four and a half billion years, has been cast, melted, and then re-cast back into a new version of itself, retaining its original form. A newly formed yet still ancient meteorite, still imbued with its cosmic history.
She should have gone to the moon 58″, Ulrike Kubatta
She Should Have Gone To The Moon presents a uniquely personal chapter in the history of the space race. It tells the astonishing story of the pilot and pioneer, Jerri Truhill, who was trained in 1961, as part of NASA’s top secret Mercury 13 programme, to become one of the First Lady Astronauts. The documentary is a lyrical journey propelled by childhood aspirations, shattered dreams and a lifelong battle against female stereotypes and male prejudice.
