THE FARTHEST TAKES OSCAR VOTERS TO OUTER SPACE

Coming off the back of a very successful festival run, a US & UK / Ireland theatrical release and having received praise from critics and audiences alike, The Farthest screened for Academy members this October at the Estrella Mar Theater in West Hollywood, CA.

Directed by Emer Reynold and Produced by John Murray and Clare Stronge, the film tells the amazing true story of the iconic Voyager space mission. It is one of humankind's greatest achievements. More than 12 billion miles away a tiny spaceship is leaving our Solar System and entering the void of deep space - the first human-made object ever to do so. Slowly dying within its heart is a nuclear generator that will beat for perhaps another decade before the lights on Voyager finally go out. But this little craft will travel on for millions of years, carrying a Golden Record bearing recordings and images of life on Earth. In all likelihood Voyager will outlive humanity. THE FARTHEST celebrates these magnificent machines, the men and women who built them and the vision that propelled them farther than anyone could ever have hoped.

Director Emer Reynolds and John Casani, manager of the Voyager Project, were both present at the screening.
