About the film:

World Premiere, Cannes Film Festival 2023

In 2200, private detective Aline Ruby and her android partner Carlos Rivera are hired by a wealthy businessman to track down a notorious hacker. On Mars, they descend deep into the underbelly of the planet’s capital city where they uncover a darker story of brain farms, corruption, and a missing girl who holds a secret about the robots that threatens to change the face of the universe.

“There’s something of Interstellar in the grand planetary landscapes that Mars Express offers. But…the film is never as beautiful as when we travel in deep space, with the blackness of the void saturating the screen.”

—Kévin Giraund, Skwigly
