This terrific beauty is set in contrast to the crazy trips taken by Kazakh rocket debris collectors in their hunt for the coveted carrot-shaped rocket stages, which literally fall out of the sky and are collected by men with trucks the size of dinosaurs.

With breathtaking images, SPACE TOURISTS takes its audience into a fascinating world full of of wonder and surprise. Encounters with the least likely people imaginable. Places even stranger and more unknown than outer space itself.

    • The Special jury award is given to SPACE TOURIST by CHRISTIAN FREI for its exceptional cinematography, its art direction and the quality of the editing. This film illustrates in a original way to what extremes our world has come to. By focusing on the paradoxes of results of the space race, this film brings the audience to reflect to what means some people will go to fulfill their passion, while most of the people still live in subnormal conditions. From outer space to rocket garbage, SPACE TOURIST is a capturing documentary.
    • Christian Frei ist es mit «Space Tourists» eindrucksvoll gelungen, das Materielle und das Immaterielle, das Geistige und das Konkrete der Raumfahrt zu verbinden. Eine ausdrucksstarke Bildebene vereint sich dabei mit einer gleichermassen sorgfältig konzipierten Tonebene zu einem wunderlichen Amalgam. Ein Dokumentarfilm der kraftvoll wie eine Rakete abhebt und doch immer wieder auf den Boden der Realität zurückkehrt.

    • «This year's award winner is a sober cinematic narrative in which
    • we are taken on a spectacular journey, where we as viewers are
    • seated in first class. It focuses on a central issue in our time:
    • The ambivalence that human beings feel between whether to
    • materialize our dreams or to allow our dreams to remain dreams.
    • We like the director's approach: the film does not reduce the
    • world to ideas, but preserves the complexity and ambivalence
    • of the world, and manages to simultaneously capture both the
    • down to earth and dreamy part of human existence.»
