“Aniara” is set in a future where Earth has been destroyed by a man-made disaster, and a spaceship named Aniara is transporting the last remnants of humanity to a new home on Mars. The spaceship is equipped with an artificial intelligence system called Mima that provides entertainment and comfort to the passengers during the long journey.

However, when Aniara is damaged by debris from the destroyed Earth, it is thrown off course and hurtles through space, leaving the passengers stranded with no hope of returning to Earth or reaching their destination on Mars. As time passes, the passengers struggle to maintain their sanity and humanity in the face of an uncertain future.


“Aniara” is a thought-provoking and visually stunning movie that explores themes of isolation, despair, and humanity. The movie is based on a poem by Swedish author Harry Martinson and is a bleak and haunting portrayal of a future where humanity is adrift in space. The acting is superb, particularly in the lead role, and the cinematography is breathtaking.

The movie's pacing can be slow at times, but it is a deliberate choice that adds to the overall atmosphere of the film. “Aniara” is not a traditional science fiction movie, but it is a deeply moving and philosophical meditation on the human condition.


“Aniara” was nominated for several awards, including:

  • Best Cinematography at the Guldbagge Awards (2019)
  • Best Visual Effects at the Swedish Film Awards (2019)
  • Best Sound at the Swedish Film Awards (2019)

However, the movie did not win any of these awards.
