MIR, A Love Story uses the conditions and experiences aboard the space station MIR as an allegory for love. Like an astronaut, the lover endures miscommunication, dependencies and the vibrant but fragile energy; unstable and imperfect, they experience sleeplessness, disorientation and loss of gravity. The mission begins with discovery, continues with endurance and ends in nostalgic caricature.
