Carefully assimilating authentic original recorded audio of the mission and a made-from-scratch musical scoring by Philip Sheppard, the film is a meticulous restitution of the Earth’s first successful orbiting mission by Soviet Union famous cosmonaut and hero, Yuri Gagarin. The film was shot entirely in the International Space Station.
In the 108 minutes worth of screen time brought about by a rare partnership between the Expedition 26/27 crew of the International Space Station and the European Space Agency, witness as Yuri Gagarin, in the 12th of April, 1961, as he did what was seemingly impossible at the time, to be the very first human being to see the world from outer space. Get lost in the beauty of the earth with a view from outer space as we slowly drift in it echoless background. Behold the serene view of the vast expanse of the lands and seas of our planet.
