Coping with isolation in outer space, and a new series from Walter Presents | Passport Picks

New from Independent Lens is Space: The Longest Goodbye, now available on Passport!

NASA’s goal to send astronauts to Mars would require a three-year absence from Earth, during which communication in real time would be impossible due to the immense distance. Meet the psychologists whose job is to keep astronauts mentally stable in outer space, as they are caught between their dream of reaching new frontiers and the basic human need to stay connected to home.

New on Passport is Black Tulip, the latest series from Walter Presents!

In the flower bulb region of the Netherlands, the feud between the Vonks and the Kesters is enflamed by a race to cultivate the rare black tulip. From Walter Presents, in Dutch with English subtitles.
