It’s difficult to explain the wave of emotions that overwhelms you watching Astro. This intense and poignant film tells a love story (or what happens when it ends) through “visual patterns”, as the director Nicky Lapierre told us. The film tells his story but is also fictional. Is that a possible thing? The director is convinced so and explains how.

Astro: It’s been 7 years since non-binary director Nicky L. Lapierre told the troubled love story between Baby and Charlie. This story is the perfect starting point for a broader conversation on the creation of your own identity. It’s an experimental and non-conventional documentary, which combines fictional elements, real life images, personal experiences and unfiltered thoughts. The result is Astro: a queer and nostalgic road trip which doesn’t follow the traditional LGBTQI+ narratives, just like the lives of its two main characters
