THE EMPTY SPHERE
Far away in the southern Pacific Ocean, 2,700 km from the nearest continent and 4 km below the surface, lies a graveyard for spacecraft. Decommissioned satellites are deliberately crashed into this region, known as Point Nemo. In a blend of truth and fiction, this experimental documentary film approaches this remote area, of which to this day not a single image exists.
