My Work and Credits:

Adrift (2016)

About: The secret world of space junk.

On March 17 1958, Vanguard, the first solar-powered satellite was launched into space. At that time, space junk did not exist. Now, over one hundred million pieces of human-made space junk orbit Earth.

Adrift follows the story of astronaut Piers Sellers who accidentally dropped his spatula in space in 2006. His spatula became a deadly piece of space junk, travelling at 17,000 miles per second. The film then journeys across the remote deserts of Chile, shifts to the current threatening skies inhabited by the International Space Station and tracks the crash of a rocket part onto Earth. The film includes narration by Vanguard, voiced by Sally Potter.
