About

Flights to Mars went out of fashion years ago. Now the only reminder of these ambitious trips is an abandoned base inhabited by a very lonely robot. The silence and tranquility of the red planet is eventually disturbed, however, by a privately-funded Czech crew, whose members have taken on the mission for very different reasons. The trip’s patron, for example, is trying to fulfill a promise to his fiancée by marrying her right on the Martian surface… A romance, moments of absurd comedy, and an existential take on colonizing outer space – all this is the unique Czech motion picture Trash on Mars, set inside an authentic simulated Mars habitat.
