The Postmodern Pioneer Plaque

Running time: 7'51"

Production: ES 2016

In 1973 Carl Sagan, renowned American astronomer and promoter of science, created a special plaque for NASA which was to help in space exploration during the Pioneer 10 mission. It was the first message of humankind addressed to extraterrestrial civilisations. Today, four decades later, the world is composing a new collective message. Boris Kozlov’s film is a rare combination of documentary, animation, and experimental film, which may intrigue not only the lovers of astrophysics. The picture has been presented at many international festivals (USA, London, Spain, Germany, Italy, Mexico).
