Space Tourists

Institute History


Documentary filmmaker Christian Frei gets inside the minds of a disparate group of billionaires willing to pay top dollar to be among the first civilians to journey beyond the limitations of our atmosphere and into outer space. Frei’s film is less a chronicle of the futuristic technologies that make space travel accessible—at least to the extremely wealthy—than an exploration of human hubris and our unquenchable thirst for adventure.

Featuring breathtaking images, Space Tourists takes viewers into a fascinating world full of wonder and surprise.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
