Entity
France
Minutes after the technical failure of her spacecraft (if you can call your ship blowing up just a “technical failure”), an astronaut finds herself ejected from her cockpit and into space. She tries in vain to contact the base to obtain help. Her oxygen level diminishes slowly but surely. She faints… after floating adrift for several hours through the immensity of space, she awakens to find herself facing a strange and mysterious entity, taking the shape of an immense black hole. A jaw dropping, gorgeous special effects laden film written and directed by Andrew Desmond. Principal cast: Alias Hilsum.
