Emer Reynolds Announced Winner of the 2017 Director’s Finders Series by SDGI
09 May 2017 : Katie McNeice
The Screen Director’s Guild of Ireland has revealed Reynold’s debut feature documentary, ‘The Farthest’, which deals with the 40th anniversary of the Nasa Voyager Mission has earned her the award.

The 2016 recipient was Risteard O’Domhnaill for his documentary, ‘Atlantic’.

Reynolds now has the opportunity to showcase her work at the Directors Guild of America Theatre in LA on 16th June 2017. Her previous work includes her role as editor on Irish titles such as ‘One Million Dubliners’ (Aoife Kelleher), and ‘Patrick’s Day’ (Terry McMahon).

Executive Producers of the ‘The Farthest’ are Sean B. Carroll, Dennis Liu and John Rubin of HHMI Tangled Bank Studios, and Keith Potter of the Irish Film Board. The documentary was one of six Irish titles to screen at the Tribeca Film Festival last month.

Finders Series, conceived by the Directors Guild of America and facilitated by the Screen Directors Guild of Ireland, presents an Irish director with an opportunity to showcase their film and to have direct access to key industry colleagues in the US. The award spotlights works of fiction, documentary or drama feature submissions from Irish directors who have not secured U.S distribution for their films.

About ‘The Farthest’
This project examines the four-decade work of nuclear-powered Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, which have travelled over 22M miles combined since leaving earth. Over twenty of the original scientists alongside those currently working on the mission, with engineers and other team members are participating in the project.

Though both spacecraft have less computing power than a mobile phone and were originally approved to travel only to Saturn and Jupiter, they took advantage of a once-in-176-year planetary alignment and used gravity-assisted slingshot trajectories to extend the missions, with Voyager 2 also visiting Uranus and Neptune.

Each of them have sent back images and data from outer planets and moons and have also advanced our knowledge of other planets and moons. Having turned back towards earth, Voyager took one of the most infamous images of Earth ever created at the request of Astronomer Carl Sagan.
