The Astronot is an Official Selection for Best International Feature Film at the Lake View International Film Festival in India. The film was shot in Bend, Oregon by director Tim Cash & written by Pennan Brae in Vancouver, BC. The film spans the years 1941-69 & has astronomy & space as its focus. It is Daniel’s dream to become an astronaut even before there was such a thing while he was growing up in the 1940s. He would read his Buck Rogers novels & ponder what space travel might be like. By the 1960s, he was observing it firsthand with the advent of the space race & his passion was fuelled even more.
