Lots of kids want to be astronauts when they grow up but most of them eventually lose interest: not so Jim, an engineer working for a space travel company. The reclusive Jim has devoted himself to a secret project: he is building his own rocket to finally fly among the stars. In order to come even close to fulfilling his lifelong dream, he must open the door of a well-sheltered workshop and let a few like-minded dreamers into it and into his mind. Nicolas Giraud’s atmospheric film gives a glimpse into the determined soul of a man who refuses to give up. The film’s gradual pace handles the subject matter sensitively and movingly with the help of modern visuals and a minimalist soundtrack.
The director of the film Nicolas Giraud will be a guest of the screening in Prague. After the screening, you can look forward to a Q&A with him.
