Indie sales and VOD aggregator Vision Films has acquired the worldwide distribution rights to the documentary One More Orbit.
The feature-length film documents the pole-to-pole circumnavigation speed record achieved by Action Aviation chairman, Hamish Harding and former commander of the International Space Station, astronaut Terry Virts in a Qatar Executive Gulfstream G650ER aircraft.
Launching from Kennedy Space Center on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the One More Orbit team completed the Guinness World Record-breaking flight on July 11, 2019, in 46 hours and 40 minutes, at the average speed of 465 miles per hour.
Vision will release the film to VOD in the U.S. and Canada on Oct. 6.
One More Orbit is an Untitled, Inc. production, directed by Virts.
