The Farthest Opens in UK
01 Sep 2017 : Deirdre Hopkins
Emer Reynolds’ award-winning and critically acclaimed documentary The Farthest which tells the story of NASA’s iconic Voyager mission and its Golden Record opens today in UK cinemas (1st September)

The film has become the biggest grossing documentary at the Irish Box Office so far this year.

Lawrence Krauss, the theoretical physicist and cosmologist who is Foundation Professor of the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University, and author of many books including his most recent “The Greatest Story Ever Told.. So Far” is interviewed in the film.  He had this to say to IFTN;

"The movie puts in remarkable and exciting perspective one of humanity’s boldest adventures so far.  Watching the film at its premiere I found myself not only fascinated by the fact that the Voyager mission was a success beyond any expectations I would have had at the time, but also by how much science here on earth has progressed even as these two lonely spacecraft continue their voyage to the stars.  And of course I am heartened to know that no matter what happens here on Earth, the Voyager spacecraft will provide some evidence, out in the galaxy, for perhaps millions or maybe even billions of years, that our civilization once existed.”

‘The Farthest is written and directed by Emer Reynolds, produced by John Murray (Crossing the Line) & Clare Stronge, edited by Tony Cranstoun. The score is by Ray Harman, Visual Effects are by Enda O’Connor, and  the cinematographer is Kate McCullough.

The film is on release in The IFI and The Light House Cinema, Dublin and will be broadcast on RTÉ 1 this Tuesday, September 5th at 10:15pm.
