The Film Archive Traveling Film Show is back in Wellington this week with a brilliant selection of space films sourced from their extensive collection.

This should be a doosey (doozey? have just realised I don’t know how to spell that) with early fantasy films from the late 1890s by French film maker and magician George Méliès. Plus footage from 1965 of Russian astronaut Alexei Leonov conducting the world’s first spacewalk!
