In November 2016, the French astronaut Thomas Pesquet set off on his first mission to space. Six weightless months in orbit about 450 kilometers from Earth, together with an international team and a copy of Saint-Exupéry’s space adventure ‘The Little Prince’. For as Pesquet says, the mission’s ultimate goal is to give children and youth something to dream about.
’16 Sunrises’ is on the same frequency, and the mission fully succeeds in a film that combines the researchers’ everyday life on board with a poetic dimension. The format is epic, and the launch and landing are incredibly exciting to watch.
