An epic feature documentary from AACTA and Emmy Award winning producers, Chris Hilton, Marcus Gillezeau and Aline Jacques the film delves into the mystery of exoplanets – distant planets capable of supporting alien life. In the last two decades thousands of such planets have been discovered, many Earth-like.
Capturing a pivotal moment in the human story, Living Universe celebrates Artemis’ interstellar journey as not only possible, but promised in humanity’s not too distant future. The film offers insight and inspiration for anyone who dreams of distant worlds, or has ever wondered: why are we here?
Eight years in the making, the film is not science fiction, but rather science faction. Living Universe blends state of the art visual effects with storytelling anchored solidly in the latest scientific research.
