SpaceX and Elon Musk weren’t the first! About the meteoric rise and sudden fall of the first-ever private space company: foolhardy, ingenious and »Made in Germany«. Like a political thriller, FLY ROCKET FLY tells of the charismatic visionary Lutz Thilo Kayser who relocates to General Mobutus’ Congolese jungle with a bunch of other passionate scientists from the German provinces in order to conquer space. When the inventors almost topple the world order of the Cold War with their rocket launch system they come into the unrelenting firing line of super powers until their downfall seems certain. A brilliantly researched documentary featuring hitherto unreleased archive footage and enigmatic contemporary witnesses.
