The Longest Voyage

In 1969, a group of astronauts made a trip into the unknown which posed enormous human and technical challenges, and changed humanity forever. The voyage to the moon seemed at the time to be the longest and most epic journey ever imagined. But was 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 will show, there are striking similarities between the modern exploration of space and the age of the great explorers. Different eras. The same adventure. Man and his will to discover new horizons.

‘The Longest Journey’ is a voyage between science and history. Twin stories that search the past to give us the keys to the future. Mixing animation, interviews and graphics and from the award-winning team behind 30 Years of Darkness.
