Explore space in an out of this world animated tour from the comfort of Saffron Walden's cinema.

Saffron Screen will be screening Living In The Universe, a stunningly animated documentary by local filmmaker Shaun Fergus Fields, on Wednesday, August 18 at 7.30pm.

The independent community cinema is proud to share the film which takes audiences on an interstellar journey through the universe.

Directed, produced and animated by Saffron Walden resident Shaun Fergus Fields, the special screening will appeal to adults and children alike and anyone with an interest in space or computer-generated animation.

Narrated by former Doctor Who Sylvester McCoy, the film takes the audience on an immersive journey into space, leaving Earth to experience some of the solar system’s most spectacular sights.

The audience will take a detailed look at the sun in all its mesmerising glory, explore the planets in our solar system, and take a trip further into the cosmos.

There we witness the formation of stars, travel through wormholes, observe stellar collisions and black holes, fly through nebulae, view the comets, and travel to distant exoplanets – planets that orbit a star other than our sun.
