In 2004 man leaves again to explore the planet Mars. After five years absence, he attempts an unequalled exploratoion with the help of hi-tech satellites and a motorized robot. Let’ s imagine ourselves projected into the future, two or three decades hence...
Mars, the red planet, cold and hostile. Mount Olympus, the highest volcano in the solar system, reaching a height of 22 km. The Olympus Mission: five sportsmen and scientists set off to explore Mars, to discover its secrets and to search for wter and life. What surprises await them? What mystery does Mars have in store? In this film, a mix of documentary and fiction, the details from the logbook of the geologist of the expedition and the most recent scientific information on the planet and its history are combinet. The film expounds the most accepted theories in the light of the traces of water found in the Martian canyons in June 2003.fter one year, thanks to the high precision images of the odyssey satellite, our kowledge of the strange topography on the surface of Mars has been examined in greater detail. The film was shot at Piton of Fournaise on Reunion Island, the place that, according to theNASA, faithfully represents Mount Olympus. The scientific parts are illustrated with unedited images and made by animating thehigh definition photographs taqken in 2003 by the Odyssey satellite and Mars Global Surveyor, whilst the Martian plateaus were created in 3D with the aid of topographic maps supplied by the NASA.

LAURENT LICHTENSTEIN

Laurent Lichtenstein a commencé par s'ennuyer en fac de biologie avant de trouver sa voie dans le montage vidéo. Engagé par RFO, il s'imagine déjà sous le soleil mais atterrit à Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, où il se familiarise avec le banc de montage. Puis il devient réalisateur pour Paris Première et M6, suit le Camel Trophy, crée des habillages pour France 3 et tâte de la publicité. Polyvalent dans l'âme, il tourne et réalise son montage avec sa caméra numérique. «Le studio, ce n'est pas mon truc, dit-il. J'aime l'imprévu.»
