ASTRA LOGOTYP white.png

A 6-year-old called Astra tries to stop her sister Anna from participating in a dangerous moon mission. But when Anna needs help, the little girl will not hesitate to go into space herself.

ASTRA is a professional debut written, designed and directed by Michal Lubinski. It blends traditional stop-motion animation with 3D tools and techniques in both pre- and post-production.

It's a story about sisterly love, great courage and the inevitable difficulties of life.
