After limited contact with mission control in the UK, unusual communication with the US and unorthodox exchanges with Soviet Russia’s Cosmodrome, will the navigator make the right decisions and get home?
Set in 1959, Guy is an experienced British fighter pilot in command of Britain’s first manned mission to space. He has trained for this for years, but at the height of the Cold War he is alone in space, suffering from hypoxia, with a malfunctioning capsule.
This claustrophobic thriller stars Edmund Kingsley as Guy Taylor, in this breathtaking début feature from Andrew Martin.
A perfect film to open our festival, and we are delighted to have cast and crew in attendance at the world premiere.
