Amateurs in Space

Documentary, Denmark 2016, 89 Min., dan. OV, engl. st

When NASA sends a rocket into space, they have a budget of umpteen million dollars. Peter Madsen and Kristian von Bengtson plan to do it with a modest amount of money, a few volunteer helpers, and materials bought at the DIY store. But they’re not complete nutcases. Madsen has already built several submarines and Bengtson worked in the space industry for years. So the two sometimes fanatic eccentrics, and the more prudent project benefactor persevere in the face of setbacks and a shortage of funds. They even manage to launch a rocket. But constant tension and arguments between the two unequal partners, and above all the increasingly erratic behaviour of the volatile Madsen, threaten to scuttle the project altogether. – Peter Madsen is currently under investigation for the murder of Swedish journalist Kim Wall when he took her on a submarine ride.
