This Giant Papier Mache Boulder Is Actually Really Heavy is a New Zealand D.I.Y. tribute to classic sci-fi adventure.

Three ordinary guys are thrust into the world of a B-grade 60's space flick. Trapped in a low-budget universe, they soon discover latex monsters and evil space villains are the least of their problems. Somehow, they have to fight their way home, before they get lost in space…forever.

“The best movie title I have seen at the Cannes so far” – Rebecca Summerton, Producer 52 Tuesdays

“It’s like Galaxy Quest meets Monty Python” – Louis Savy, Sci-fi London Director
