The film follows Daniel McKovsky, a young man who lost both his parents at a young age and whose only solace is his fascination with space travel and the cosmos beyond. One day at the age of 30, he meets outgoing postal worker, Sandy Allister. This new inclusion into his otherwise lonely existence forces Daniel to confront his darkest fears of loss and emptiness which shall lead him towards becoming, The Astronot.

The Astronot was filmed in rural Oregon, using local cast and crew, including director Tim Cash of Far From Earth Films. The Astronot has already won accolades at various international film festivals in the USA, UK & Europe including Best Actor (Pennan Brae), Score (Pennan Brae) and Trailer.


‘The story of The Astronot unfolds during an incredible time of exploration for America and the world,’ reflects Pennan. ‘It was an inspiring time for ingenuity and progress as the United States and Soviet Union raced to the moon.’
