2016, Dir. Patrick Buchanan, Canada, 74 min 

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.

The BFI is funding ‘Transformative Film Culture For Hull', as part of its National Lottery-funded BFI Film Audience Network and led by its lead partner BFI Film Hub North. Delivered through Hull 2017 and by Hull Independent Cinema and a unique partnership of film festival, educational and archive partners from across the north, the film programme will bring a packed programme of more than 400 screenings, one-off events and film festivals throughout the year to Hull and the region. The programme reflects the BFI’s activities across the UK to bring film to audiences where there is less opportunity for them to experience and engage in film, and to support local film networks and audience initiatives. There will be much to explore, celebrate and enjoy.
