Distributor set to release film in New York and Los Angeles in mid-August.
Abramorama has acquired North American theatrical distribution rights for the documentary The Farthest, which chronicles NASA’s Voyager mission.
Emer Reynolds wrote and directed the film that tells the story of the Voyager space mission which defied all odds by visiting our solar system’s outer planets for the first time before achieving humankind’s first journey into interstellar space.
The film will be released theatrically in New York and Los Angeles on August 11, with additional one-night event screenings around the country to follow.
The Farthest has screened multiple film festivals including Edinburgh, Seattle, Sydney, Tribeca, and the Audi Dublin International Film Festival (ADIFF) where it won the AUDI-ence award as well as best Irish documentary and the George Byrne Maverick Award, which was presented to Reynolds.
John Murray and Clare Stronge produced for Crossing the Line, while John Rubin, Dennis Liu and Sean B Carrol served as executive producers.
The Farthest was supported by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB) and produced in association with HHMI Tangled Bank Studios, RTÉ, BBC, ZDF, Arte and PBS.
Abramorama negotiated the deal with HHMI Tangled Bank Studios on behalf of the filmmakers.
The Farthest will air on PBS on August 23.
