The global film industry is trying to come up with new ideas to gain more and more viewers around the world. Among them is the one that was announced last May and concerns the first film that will be shot in space and more specifically on the International Space Station.

Staying in space for a while is not an easy process, which is why those involved went through training to learn the conditions that prevail outside the earthly atmosphere. The "Yuri Gagarin Center for the Training of Cosmonauts" was the training place of the small film crew which will remain for 12 days in space in order to complete the shooting.
