A mixture of billionaires, governments, geneticists, psychologists and private individuals currently want to push colonies in space. Seeing the Earth on the brink, they are looking for an alternative Earth. In “Last Exit: Space”, director Rudolph Herzog explores the question of whether humanity is really destined to move from planet to planet and why part of humanity would rather reach for the stars than save the Earth.

Gunpowder & Sky, Spring Films and Taglicht Media have co-produced Last Exit: Space, which will be shown on discovery+ later this year.
