You asked. We listened. This critically-acclaimed film, a standout from the 2017 New Zealand International Film Festival is back!

It is one of humankind’s greatest achievements. More than 12 billion miles away a tiny spaceship, Voyager, 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 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 is a fascinating, witty film that celebrates the magnificent machine, the men and women who built it and the vision that propelled them farther than anyone could ever have hoped.
