Fly Rocket Fly

Synopsis & Infos

50 years ago, the winner of the space race between the USSR and the USA was decided by Neil Armstrong‘s one small step onto the moon. However, the superpowers weren‘t the only ones trying to conquer the final frontier. This film tells the incredible story of OTRAG, the world‘s first private space launch company, which launched rockets from the heart of the Congolese jungle and existed long before SPACE X (Elon Musk) and BLUE ORIGIN (Jeff Bezos). FLY ROCKET FLY is an adventure, a political thriller and a farce: a cross between FITZCARRALDO, THE WAGES OF FEAR and EXPLORER TO THE MOON.
