Film by Emilio Seri



    A melancholy Astronaut is drifting in Space and striving to maintain a distant relationship with his lover. However, the more he travels towards the edges of the Universe, the more the delay in the communication between them grows, affecting his dreams and raising his anxiety. Will the two lovers be able to stay in touch or will the distance between them become too big to be bridged? Astral Migrant is an unconventional sci-fi short film that pays homage to Italo Calvino’s Cosmicomics.
