Peresild said about “a little sad” mood after arrival from the ISS
“Kinoekipazh” with actress Yulia Peresild and director Klim Shipenko has finished shooting a feature film on the International Space Station (ISS). Together with cosmonaut Oleg Novitsky, they landed in Kazakhstan on the Soyuz MS-18 spacecraft on October 17 at 7.35 Moscow time. This was reported on the Roscosmos website.
“All operations on descent from low-earth orbit and landing took place in the normal mode, the crew is feeling well,” the state corporation said in a statement.
By the time they returned to Earth, Peresild and Shipenko had been in space for 12 days, and Novitsky – 191 days (531 days in three flights). The cosmonaut arrived on the ISS on April 9, 2021 and participated in dozens of experiments from various fields of science (medicine, space biology, biotechnology, physicochemical processes, etc.).
“Today, Oleg Novitsky, Klim Shipenko and Yulia Peresild will be delivered by a special board to the Chkalovsky airfield (Moscow region), and then to the Complex for pre-launch training and post-flight rehabilitation of cosmonauts (astronauts) in Star City. Oleg Novitsky's rehabilitation will take place in several stages: the first 2 – He will spend 3 weeks at the Cosmonaut Training Center, and later go to a sanatorium. The recovery of Peresild and Shipenko after a short-term flight into space will take about a week, “Roskosmos notes.
Together with Novitsky and Peresild, Russian cosmonauts Anton Shkaplerov and Peter Dubrov, who remained on board the ISS for further work, took part in the filming.
“Friends, I am glad to greet everyone from the International Space Station again!” with you all these 12 days. “
The first press conference “kinoekipazh” will hold on October 19. During the entire flight, Shipenko and Peresild did not use social networks – Novitsky shared their photos with the ISS. He showed the crew's dinner, filmed the re-docking of the ship and the views from the window.
Shkaplerov, Shipenko and Peresild arrived at the ISS on the Soyuz MS-19 spacecraft on October 5, 2021. In space, they filmed fragments of a feature film, tentatively titled Challenge. The plot of the tape is dedicated to a girl-doctor who flies into orbit to save an astronaut. Filming began on the approach to the ISS. In orbit, it was planned to shoot 35-40 minutes of screen time.
Before the world's first filming of a feature film in space, Peresild passed a casting of three thousand actresses. Then she mastered the crash course with Shipenko, who became the director and operator of the tape. After landing, Peresild shared her emotions from the flight with Channel One.
“I have a little sad mood today. Because it seemed like 12 days was a lot, and when it was all over, I didn't want to leave,” she said. “It's clear that it was only once.”
According to Konstantin Ernst, General Director of Channel One, the footage looks “amazingly cinematic” and differs from the frames that imitate weightlessness in other films.
“In general, they are insanely happy that everything ended so successfully that the guys filmed not even 100%, but 120% of the shooting plan, that they feel brilliant,” he said.
On the morning of October 17, Dmitry Surin, Deputy Head of the Payload Center of RSC Energia, said that the “movie crew” was not allowed to take the camera from the ISS, which was being filmed. According to him, the camera “is still flying, it will most likely be used, and then it will be disposed of,” the crew was allowed to take a kilogram of personal belongings from the ISS.
