It's Quieter in the Twilight follows one of history's most imperative scientific missions. Viewers will see and hear the first-hand experience of those who made it possible and their continuous research.
When it launched, the Voyager Program had a clear mission: gather information and observe the solar system. In 1977, Voyager 1 and 2 launched in opposite Southern and Northern directions and were the first interstellar probes created to collect data beyond the solar system. With a secondary mission to reach and explore interstellar space, the Voyager became a massive trending topic among the public, piquing interest worldwide.
Various data collected from the probes helped turn theories into facts. As time passed, public interest diminished, but the powerful group behind the program continued their efforts with the same determination they began with. One by one the team narrowed down to the twelve engineers who still dedicate their lives to the unofficial thirteenth member of the team — Voyager. It's a race against time to save the probes that once captured the nation.
It's Quieter in the Twilight premiered at the SXSW Film Festival. The critically acclaimed documentary that The Spool called "undeniably engrossing," is set to be released worldwide on Friday, May 19. Director Billy Miossi captures vital moments of the Voyager team in action. He embraces the commitment to continue collecting and keeping its name alive despite not being frequently mentioned in the media.
"The world should know these unsung explorers and the essential role they’ve played in humanity’s most ambitious adventure," Miossi said.
The documentary features Suzy Dodd, Enrique Medina, Chris Jones, Todd Barber, Fernando Peralta, Jefferson Hall, and Sun Kang Matsumoto. It's Quieter in the Twilight shows the diverse team of engineers as they explain their roles in the mission in a heartfelt way as well as the impact of the historical mission on their professional and personal lives.
