Private Project

Kessler Syndrome

Astronaut Jack Harrison attempts to navigate a dense debris field that stands between him and survival, while also starting to put together the horrifying truth of what his future holds. The film explores the idea of what it means to be human in a world reliant on technology and automation, and whether human emotions of love and loneliness can transcend time and space.

Director Statement

"One man," I thought. "One man in a cockpit. How hard could that be?" Well, to quote Morpheus, "There's a difference between knowing the path, and walking the path."

I've learned a lot on this maiden voyage and I invite you to sit back, grab some popcorn, and enjoy the journey that is "Kessler Syndrome".
