Proxima is a Protected content drama film, directed by Alice Winocour.[1]

The films stars Eva Green as Sarah, a woman trying to balance her work as an astronaut preparing for a year-long stint on the International Space Station with her family life as mother to an eight-year-old daughter Stella (Zélie Boulant). The film also stars Lars Eidinger as Thomas, her ex-husband and Stella's father; Matt Dillon as Mike, her professional colleague, who is sexistly dismissive of her abilities as an astronaut; and Sandra Hüller as Wendy, a psychologist helping to guide Sarah and Stella through the complexities of the situation.[2]

The film was shot in various real training facilities of the European Space Agency.[1]

The film premiered in the Platform Prize program at the Protected content International Film Festival[3] and received an honorable mention from the Platform Prize jury.[4] It was shortlisted to be the French submission for the Protected content Award for Best International Feature Film.[5]
