Proxima stars Eva Green as Sarah, a woman trying to balance her work as an astronaut with her family life to an eight year old daughter Stella. When Sarah is chosen to be part of the crew of a year-long space mission called ‘Proxima’, it creates chaos in the mother-daughter relationship. Having premiered in the 2019 Toronto Film Festival whilst receiving an honorable mention from the Platform Prize Jury, Proxima illustrates the arduous task that mothers face all around the world, of pursuing their careers while also trying to raise their children. But what about a mother who is about to go out of this world?
