[krvod url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32vlOgN_3QQ&hd=1]Tomek Baginski’s Ambition, starring Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones) and Aisling Franciosi (The Fall), was created to support the European Space Agency (ESA)’s Rosetta mission.
The short film is presented as a creative interpretation of one of the most important space exploration endeavors of this decade. In this far-flung future, humankind has unlocked god-like powers of creation. The Apprentice must learn mastery of her skills before taking on the greatest of challenges. Just as Gillen’s enigmatic Master encourages Franciosi’s Apprentice to seek out the key to life amidst a rugged alien landscape, the ESA has been on a decade-long ambitious journey of its own: to unlock the mysteries of a comet and the origins of our Solar System with its Rosetta spacecraft, hundreds of millions of kilometers from Earth.
Talking about scientific exploration and getting the point across can be a challenge. Ambition adds a thrilling dimension to Rosetta mission of scientific and technological discovery.
