You can’t stop life nor a fighter plane... a story of the first European cosmonaut

It’s the 1960s and the world powers compete on both sides of the Iron Curtain. Spaceflights are one of the battlefields where they compare their “muscles of steel”. The wheels of history will literally take a Czechoslovak cosmonaut up to the stars and in the following years will send him to other incredible and once-in-a-life situations within the context of world history. From a son defying his father to space. From a prominent through a museum employee to the highest floors of European politics…
You just can’t stop life and a fighter plane…



A biographical documentary film about Vladimir Remek is to present different views of his life – the first Czechoslovak cosmonaut and a communist awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union… later a Member of the European Parliament, significantly engaged in placing the headquarters of the Galileo system in the Czech Republic and considered the first European cosmonaut by the European Space Agency (ESA), and finally the Czech Ambassador to the Russian Federation at the end of his career. A personality who received best wishes for his 70th birthday from both the director of the European Space Agency and the director of the Roscosmos State Corporation. But at the same time also an almost forgotten museum employee and a sales representative. And this all in the context of the development of cosmonautics from the 1970s until now. We are planning to shoot scenes for the film in Moscow and the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the Kazakh Steppe, in the ESA Headquarters in France and the European Parliament, in Germany and Slovakia, and in Europe’s Spaceport in French Guyana, or in the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. and NASA’s Mission Control Center in Houston. It is the first film about Vladimir Remek’s life and we would also like to publish a book. But we will see what we will be allowed to do by international Covid restrictions.

What jobs has he had? His nostalgia for Russia and flying planes… drones today… and you can judge for yourself what role a personality plays in history…

When dealing about possible partnerships, we always ask if we also share a common view of the world and if there is anything else that connects us.
