A fascinating documentary about NASA’s 1977 launch of space probes Voyager I and II, sent to photograph remote planets and bear messages from Earth to whoever might be out there listening.

An expert talk chaired by University of Oxford’s Professor of Astrophysics, Chris Lintott (BBC Sky at Night/Citzen Science) follows this one-off screening.

‘One of the deeply admirable things about this film, in addition to the beauty of its imagery, its sprightly rhythm and its witty soundtrack, is that the science isn’t too dumbed down.’ ★★★★ Leslie Felperin, The Guardian

‘Reynolds’ film conveys a legitimate, stirring sense of awe about mankind’s innate desire for adventure, discovery and communion with all that surrounds it.’ Nick Schager, Variety

Dir. Emer Reynolds. Ireland, 2017. 2h 1m. Starring Frank Drake, Carolyn Porco, John Casani, Lawrence Krauss, Timothy Ferris, Edward Stone.
