Proxima

Alice Winocour builds on her meticulously crafted body of work with this incisive drama, in which an astronaut and mother (Green) grapples with her commitment to her daughter as she undergoes gruelling physical training for a one-year stint in space. Winocour reveals a woman responding to escalating and competing stresses offering a poignant and refreshingly feminist take on the traditionally male dominated sci-fi genre.
