Ilan Eshkeri presents Space Station Earth

Space Station Earth is a spell-binding new film which allows the audience to enjoy an immersive experience of life in space – all through the eyes of an astronaut. In space astronauts all share a similar shift in consciousness, it’s often called the Overview Effect. Astronauts very quickly learn and appreciate how everything on earth is connected – land, oceans, weather systems and people, and how we need to protect and look after our home.

Space Station Earth, a unique and immersive cinematic experience for all ages, offers all of this – an unimaginable journey into space, using real footage and images while at it’s core supporting and celebrating the closest we have to actual super heroes – Astronauts. We appeal to fans of science fiction as much as we are appeal to fans of science fact.

Created by Ilan Eshkeri, in association with The European Space Agency, all previously unseen footage is taken on board the International Space Station by the 6 European Space Corp Astronauts of the class of 2009: (Tim Peake, Andreas Mogensen, Luca Parmitano, Thomas Pesquet, Alexander Gerst and Samantha Cristoforetti).
