Sarah is a French aerospace engineer who gets her dream assignment of a year-long mission on the International Space Station. However, to do so will require a punishing course of rigorous physical training. There’s also the small matter of the emotional toll of leaving behind her eight-year-old daughter Stella for a year with her ex-husband. How can a woman balance motherhood with a career? What are women up against in a decidedly male world. Winacour succeeds brilliantly through immaculate research and accomplished direction to create a moving and very tender portrayal of familial relationships against the backdrop of an awe-inspiring journey.
We have an exclusive, specially recorded introduction from Director Anna Winocour for this screening.
Purbeck Film Festival: Supported by the BFI and its South West Regional Hub the Purbeck Film Festival aims to provide a rich variety of cinematic experiences across a rural area which does not have easy access to foreign language, independent and classic films.
