Description

French actress Eva Green stars as Sarah, an astrophysicist who is selected for a one-year spaceflight in preparation for a future mission to Mars. Being the only woman in the arduous program, she puts double effort to prove her colleagues worthy of the journey to space. At the same time, she is trying to balance intense training and time spent with the most precious person on Earth – seven-year-old daughter Stella, whom she will have to leave behind. The authenticity of the film is achieved by shooting in actual locations.

„We will start 25th Vilnius Film Festival with accomplished and authentic Alice Winocour's film about double mission of astronaut Sarah. I hope this film will spark emotional engagement with this edition's theme Futures. Instead of just leaving a city or a country, how does one say goodbey to loved ones when departing Planet Earth?
