Astraea

“Contemplative post-apocalyptic drama grounded by an accessible futuristic scenario and fine ensemble performances.”  – Hollywood Reporter

When disease nearly wipes out the human race, a telepathic teenage girl named Astraea believes her visions confirm that survivors are living in Northern Canada. She leads her doubting brother on a five thousand mile journey, through a silent America, and into the snowbound wilderness, hoping to re-build life as she knew it. As they head North, her clairvoyance intensifies and they encounter another couple homesteading on a remote lake in Maine. The grief and complexity – as well as the excitement and comfort of communal living pits itself against Astraea’s desire to keep moving and find her family. Astraea is a post-apocalyptic film that finally shows not what humanity is running from, but what we’re running toward.
