Reise zum Mars: 2009 retro-science-fiction-musik-clip

Fans of Martian science fiction & fantasy multimedia projects will enjoy Reise zum Mars (2009), a short, silent, black-and-white, retro-science-fiction film. The work of German director Sebastian Binder, Reise zum Mars is an adventurous story about three travelers who journey to the Red Planet in a zeppelin. It is based on a script written by early 20th-century constructivist artist Walter Dexel and is set to an eerie soundtrack by die band Maren Montauk.

A beautiful piece of art that “gives the naive, aesthetic and imperial fantasies at the beginning of modernity,” Reise zum Mars reminds me of the video for The Smashing Pumpkins song “Tonight, Tonight” (1996).
