Terra Incognita

Switzerland 2005

He was in the headlines in the late 1920s: Igor Leschenko, the young physicist from Hermannstadt, whose bizarre experiments cast doubt upon the law of gravity. The debacle at the pataphysicist convention leads to a secret expedition to the point of zero gravity. Rare film documentation of a hazardous journey. (Source: Trieste Science+Fiction Festival)
