The Basement Satellite (2014) Trailer
Trailer for The Basement Satellite.
Art today isnt just painting a pretty picture or making a sculpture. Making you think about something new and making something different is also art. A South Korean artist and amateur scientist sets out to build the first civilian satellite. Blurring the lines between science and fantasy, Hojun Song establishes the Open Source Satellite Initiative in an effort to demonstrate that the most out there, seemingly unachievable dreams can come true. He spends five years testing, tweaking, drawing up diagrams and soldering circuit boards in pursuit of a goal thats as crazy as it is inspiring. Will Songs masterpiece achieve lift-off when it arrives on the tarmac in Kazakhstan? Does it even matter? Strangely compelling, The Basement Satellite stands as the ultimate all-nighter, a fluorescent-lit reflection on failures necessary involvement in the creative process and the struggle to try something new.
