Sci-Fi Weekend: Journey to Mars!

Curiosity is scheduled to land on Mars, August 6th. Juan Pablo Zaramello, an Argentine filmmaker, produced 15 minute sci-fi animation in 2005, “Viaje a Marte.” An excellent science fiction story done in claymation, perhaps, best suited for children. Antonio, young protagonist, wants to go to Mars, his grandfather obliges in his classic Ford tow truck. The only real question is model year: 53 or 54? Moral of story is Argentineans beat Americans to Mars. Viaje a Marte, Parte Dos is here – good stuff!
