“Proxima” tells the story of Sarah, a young ESA astronaut who gets chosen for a 1-year mission in the International Space Station. Sarah struggles both physically (she is the only woman) and mentally (she prepares for the separation with her 8-year-old daughter).


“Proxima” is an inspiring movie about women in science and the balance between a very challenging job and a healthy family life. The movie highlights the challenges that women still face today when they want to embrace a scientific career in combination with normal family life. It will be followed by a short discussion about the current status of women in science in Belgium. You will also learn about the strong involvement of European researchers in world-class astronomy.

The movie is directed by Alice Winocour, lead role by Eva Green and distributed by AKA Agency.
