Mars Geoff Marslett, 2010, 83 min, US 2/4 915p, 2/7 7p In 2014, a new space race is born when three American astronauts compete against an artificially intelligent robot to find out if there's really life on the Red Planet. The motley crew of space travelers are beset by life-threatening accidents, self-doubt, obnoxious reporters and the isolation of the final frontier as they discover that love can flourish anywhere. Told in the playful style of a graphic novel, this remarkably funny interplanetary animated feature explores the impact humans have on natural habitats (especially extra terrestrial ones), and asks the question "Why do we explore?"
