Climate change has left the Earth uninhabitable, and the last human survivors are on a three-week journey to a new life on Mars aboard the spaceship Aniara. It is fitted with the basic amenities of modern life – shopping centres, night clubs, swimming pools – and a unique feature known as the Mima, a machine whose sole purpose is to evoke the viewer’s pleasant memories of Earth, keeping them placated as they travel through the endless darkness of space. When an unexpected event threatens the security of their voyage, the passengers must learn to cope with the sudden uncertainty of their fate in this prescient Swedish sci-fi film.
