The Longest Goodbye

dir. Ido Mizrahy / 2023 / Israel, Canada / 87min.
Film follows a savvy NASA psychologist tasked with protecting astronauts, who will spend couple of years on the way to Mars.

In the next decade, NASA will send astronauts to Mars for the first time. Separated from Earth, and unable to communicate with ground in real time throughout the three-year journey, crew members will experience extreme isolation that could gravely affect their mental state and the mission. The Longest Goodbye follows a savvy NASA psychologist tasked with protecting these daring explorers, who are torn between their dream to reach new frontiers and their need to stay connected to home. This conflict, we soon realize, transcends space travel: how do we balance our drive for progress with the deep connection to our roots and each other.
