My Father is an Astro-Not

Philippines | 7 min | Adventure, Drama | 2020 | Short Film (Live Action) | Tagalog

A father talks to his young daughter over a video call for one last time. He awaits departure to the star 'Forever 143' where he will live out the rest of his life. The sentiments shared between a father and daughter are brought to life.


মহাকাশের তারা 'ফরেভার ১৪৩’ এর উদ্দেশ্যে এক মহাকাশচারী যাত্রা করবেন। যাত্রার পূর্বে শিশুকন্যার সাথে ভিডিও কলে তার শেষ কথোপকথন হয়। সেই দূর মহাকাশেই তাকে তার বাকি জীবন কাটাতে হবে। তাদের কথোপকথনের আবেগ যেন ভারী করে তুলেছে পুরো মহাকাশকে।

Original Language
