A real breakthrough in the global cinema industry – a Russian film director will shoot a feature film in outer space for the first time in history
The space ship controlled by Hero of Russia, commander Anton Shkaplerov delivered film director Klim Shipenko and actress Julia Peresild to the International Space Station. The spaceship was successfully launched fr om Baikonur. The cinema crew has already managed to make contact with Earth and has started the first shooting day. By the design of the Russian film director, with the support of “Roscosmos”, the scenes of the feature film called “Challenge” will be shot in outer space, and the international orbital station will act as decor.
