film synopsis

Prospect is the story of a normal teenage girl: she loves music and books, and she's often exasperated by her dad. But this girl happens to live a peripatetic existence between planets and interstellar bases, having learned survival skills and the hustle of off-world gem harvesting alongside her freelancing father. When the duo undertakes a high-risk mission on a distant, verdant moon, they'll have to contend with more than just the toxic atmosphere to claim their riches and return to safe harbor. Featuring a breakout performance by Sophie Thatcher (who brings to mind Emma Watson's wise-beyond-her-years Hermione in the Harry Potter franchise crossed with Hailee Steinfeld in the True Grit update), Prospect's spectacular world-building relies on minimal special effects. Instead it employs setting, cinematography, and an appealingly handmade quality to both production and costume design to bring to life a story that could be happening right now, perhaps in a galaxy far, far away.

In competition for the New Voices New Visions Award.
