Science Fiction Short Film: Telescope

I came across this beautiful, bittersweet science fiction short film that perfectly blends the fascination I have for both astronomy and science fiction. You can nitpick about the science and the ship design (no debris shield?), but that doesn't detract from the emotional impact it has.

The quote at the end is perfect in so many ways. I don't think I have to explain why. 
 "As men tied to the Earth, we dream of visiting the stars. As men tied to the stars, we will dream of returning home."

You'll definitely want to watch this one in full screen. Enjoy!

  1. Oh wow, that was BRILLIANT! =o I loved the juxtaposition of the technology and his analog wrist watch. And the lack of dialogue from the man in the ship.

    Thanks for sharing this, it was lovely =)
