EXPLORERS takes off from the compelling visions imagined by one of the world’s most widely read novelists, pioneer science-fiction writer Jules Verne, author of 20,000 Leagues under the Sea and From the Earth to the Moon. Discover the unbelievable journeys of two legendary explorers: Buzz Aldrin, who, along with Neil Armstrong, became the first men to set foot on the Moon during the Apollo 11 Mission; and James Cameron, multiple Academy Award winning filmmaker, who since completing his epic movie Titanic, has undertaken the exploration of the ocean’s mysteries utilizing revolutionary submarines and 3D cameras of his own design.
Jean-Jules Verne opens his great-grandfather’s novels and sends us on our journey with two men who actualize the fantastic dreams of Jules Verne.
James CAMERON and Buzz ALDRIN plunge us into a universe of unforgettable images. Risking their own lives, they pursue their passions by reaching into the Unknown. Set sail with two legendary men on two overwhelming voyages, from the spectacular rediscovery of the Titanic, to the depths of the Abyss, to the odyssey of the first Moon voyage.
