Lunar Orbit takes us into the Ultraworld of the pioneers of ambient house music. This feature documentary explores The Orb's unique creative process and delves into the story behind the music, revealing the history of The Orb's origins and the foundation of the friendships that have anchored the mothership.

The film boasts unprecedented studio access from the duo’s Moonbuilding 2703AD recording sessions in Berlin, live concert footage, rare and previously unseen archive material and interviews with key creative players including Youth, Guy Pratt, Mixmaster Morris, Matt Black, and many other current and former members of The Orb's extended family. The result is a documentary that is truly Orbriginal.
