State Of Weightlessness

State Of Weightlessness

Synopsis

When the Soviet empire was still competing with the West to prove its supremacy through technological and scientific progress, to go into outer space was not only a dream come true for Russian cosmonauts but also the symbol of a national pride that would justify the most demanding training conditions. Through interviews with cosmonauts, scientists, physicians, surviving family members, medical experiment participants and archival footage, Drygas shows the darkest realities of the programmes that cosmonauts had to endure. Lives were disposable for the good of the state and the "number of disasters did not matter”.
