Once again, Fish Ladder, Platige Image and ESA blur the lines between science fiction and science fact in their epilogue to the award-winning 2014 short film „Ambition”, as the Rosetta spaceship is set to complete its historic mission in a controlled descent to the surface of its comet on 30 September.
„Ambition – Epilogue”is directed by Maciej Jackiewicz, previously involved in spearheading award-winning productions of Platige Image, such as the „Cyberpunk 2077”and „The Witcher”series trailers. The producers of the film are Marta Staniszewska and Jan Pomierny, both from Fish Ladder, whilst prof. Mark McCaughrean, Senior Science Advisor in ESA remains the executive producer.
The film is a continuation of the collaboration with ESA, that began in 2014 with the highly-acclaimed sci-fi short „Ambition”, directed by Tomek Bagiński, starring Aidan Gillen („Game of Thrones”, „The Dark Knight Rises”) and Aisling Franciosi („Game of Thrones”, „Fallen”). In „Ambition – Epilogue” we see the return of the young Apprentice, as she is now a fully fledged Master of cosmic origins.
