Ambition the film

In the far future, humanity's first successful attempt to catch and study a comet is discussed between a master and apprentice as the beginning of the drive to explore the universe. This short film was shown preceding the ESA's presentation on the Rosetta mission's successful landing of the Philae probe on comet 67P. According to the ESA on YouTube, "Ambition is a collaboration between Platige Image and ESA. Directed by Tomek BagiƄski and starring Aidan Gillen and Aisling Franciosi, Ambition was shot on location in Iceland, and screened on 24 October 2014 during the British Film Institute’s celebration of Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder, at the Southbank, London."
