Large format is the biggest and highest quality film format that exists nowadays. It is usually known as IMAX®, and it is a film negative with 15 perforations by 70 millimeters, that gives a quality of image 10 times better than the usual 35 millimeters film.
In Orbita Max we are creators of the first Spanish large format film, “Mystery of the Nile”, the most successful large format documentary film in 2005, the year of its opening.
After the success of “Mystery of the Nile” we keep working on the development and production of new large format films for giant screen theatres.
Jana, a 10 year old girl from Barcelona, sees a bushman boy hospitalized. She then starts a magical journey on her winged-horse searching for him in his land, Africa. While in Africa she will meet Mel, her new best friend, that will travel with her whenever possible. Jana will also interact with other children, animals and magical creatures that will show her the path to imagination and meaning of life. Jana’s magical journey to Africa contains a deep message about friendship, love, passion, nature and imagination. It is a spiritual journey for the adults and a magical travel for the kids, full of mysteries, adventures and discoveries.
