The Sasha wins Radar Award

11 October

Dutch experimental short The Sasha has won the Radar Award at the Curtocircuito festival in Santiago de Compostella last week. The jury presented the award to director María Molina Peiró with the following statement: "The 2019 Curtocurcuito Radar Jury recognizes a visionary essay film that follows a real life astronaut on a spectacular voyage to the moon that crash lands on the Internet. With resourceful use of archival images and online research, the artist reflects poetically on the human impulse to transcend boundaries and make contact with eternity. The Radar Jury gives its award to The Sasha by María Molina Peiró.".

The short film had its world première at the International Film Festival Rotterdam in the Ammodo Tiger Short Competition and has been selected for several festivals since, including BFI London Film Festival, IndieLisboa and Goshort International Short Film Festival Nijmegen.

The Sasha is a fictional essay about the human perspective on Earth and our constant struggle with our temporal and spatial limitations. From the exploration of space to cyberspace, from an analogue Moon in 1972 to a virtual Moon in Google Earth today. A film about parallel universes where eternity seems to be lost between frames and interfaces.
