The Longest Voyage

In less than 15 years, a group of astronauts will make a trip into the unknown that will last for more than three years and pose enormous human and technical challenges. For many, the journey to mars will be the longest and most epic journey ever imaged. But is it really so?

In 1519, Magellan and Elcano set off on a journey that would end up circumnavigating the globe. It was a voyage that closed one chapter for mankind and opened another to the modern age. And, as this film wll show, there are striking similarities between the two journeys. Different eras. The same adventure. Man and his will to discover new horizons.

‘The Longest Journey’ is a voyage between science and history. A story from the present that will search through the past for the keys to the future. Mixing animation, interviews and graphics and from the award-winning team behind 30 Years of Darkness.
