Astronauts

Short Film, AT 2022, digital, 18 min, OmeU
Program: Kurzspielfilm Programm 6

Mariano Cabaco’s portrait of a young single mother revolves around questions of self-determination and responsibility. At the same time, it becomes clear that these questions are posed differently for those outside of society. First the encounter with an astronaut who has escaped society’s expectations offers possible answers—and seems to dissolve gravity for a moment.
