|Running time|| |
Sola Luna is a 2015 drama brickfilm by Benjamin Ely. It is about a chance meeting between two lonely astronauts on Earth's Moon. It was created for the 2015 Darkness and Light Contest and ultimately won first place.
A male astronaut is stationed at a remote Moon outpost. He is apparently lonely and stares longingly back at Earth as he goes about his daily mundane life at the base. Meanwhile, a female astronaut stranded elsewhere on the Moon is working to build a transmitter from the wreckage of her downed spacecraft.
As the male astronaut sits alone in his moon base at night, he intercepts a signal from the stranded female astronaut's makeshift transmitter and the two engage in an inaudible but apparently eager conversation.Unfortunately, the happy moment is cut short when a meteorite impact destroys the transmitter, cutting off the female astronaut's video feed and rendering her unconscious. Startled, the male astronaut leaves his base in a distressed state of mind. He eventually happens to stumble upon the wreckage of the female astronaut's ship. After locating the wounded and unconscious astronaut, he takes her back to his base and administers medical attention. She eventually regains consciousness and the two hold hands.
