American Astronaut

American Astronaut

+ Man on the Moon + Billy Nayer

Space...a sparsely populated and oddly segregated frontier. Samuel Curtis (McAbee) delivers a cat to an asteroid saloon and from there things get really strange. Traversing the solar system and pursued by his sinister nemesis Professor Hess (Rocco Sisto) who is killing all those in his wake, the space-faring cowboy gets more than he bargained for. With handmade sets and effects, brimming with infectious music and dancing, The American Astronaut will restore your faith in cinema. Includes early McAbee shorts The Man on the Moon (1993, 23 mins) and Billy Nayer (1992, 3 mins).
