MKE Film Festival

The Viking Society is recruiting volunteers for the first human mission to Mars. Their assignment? Stay earthbound and mirror the astronauts on Mars to troubleshoot the interpersonal conflicts brewing millions of miles away. The film balances absurdist humor with a poignant reflection on the human condition as it follows the subjects of behavioral research—and the astronauts they mirror.
