What is the film about?

One night, passing through her childhood home of Russia, a woman reminisces about faraway landscapes.

What influenced it?

The has been mainly influenced by Andrei Tarkovsky’s cinema, with a chaplinesque twist.

A little background information...

Since my childhood, like many others, I have always been fascinated by space exploration. When I heard about a little anecdote on the return of the first man in space, I decided to mix it with my own family story in order to make a universal and personal tale.

How was the film made?

It’s what you can call a movie made in a basement. Done with much love and a lot of charcoal and paper. Two years of work.

@lewisheriz @skwigly That first time you see it move is such a buzz and then you add sound and it just enters a whole new stratosphere.

@themooks @skwigly I know it's kind of obvious, but I used to see it as 'important but secondary'. I don't see it as secondary any more.
