About The Farthest:
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 will celebrate these magnificent machines, the men and women who built them and the vision that propelled them farther than anyone could ever have hoped.
Boasting traditional non-fiction aesthetics as graceful as its story is chills-inducing, "The Farthest" should be an ideal sight to see on a New York or Los Angeles theatrical big-screen. - Nick Schager, Variety
