Valentina’s Dream

Valentina Tereshkova is a remarkable woman. She was last seen (media wise) waving the Olympic flag at the 2014 Winter Olympics. Why is she famous? In 1963 she became the first woman (and the first civilian) to have flown in space.

Here, British actor Rebecca Front revisits an interview Tereshkova made in 2013 where she talks about her dream of going beyond the Earth and deeper in to the solar system.

The short film was made by John Panton, director and founder of Meat Bingo. Rebecca Front may seem familiar to you, especially if you are from the UK. She has appeared in countless TV shows including The Thick of It, The Day Today and Death Comes to Pemberley.
