“The Moon & Back” is a light-hearted, coming-of-age dramedy whose director, Lech Bleich, was selected as one of five filmmakers selected for “The Six Feet Apart Experiment,” a ground-breaking filmmaking competition from Wayfarer Studios. One year after her father’s death, high school senior Lydia Gilbert feels completely lost until she discovers something quite unexpected: “Space Chronicles,” the screenplay for a $200M+ space opera that was written long ago by her late father. Equipped with just a VHS camera, zero filmmaking knowledge, some pocket change, and a nerdy guy pal she coerces into helping with her grand plans, Lydia decides to make this script a reality. The project quickly becomes much bigger than she thought it would be. Things begin to unravel as the would-be young director juggles the film, her relationship with her supremely patient mother (Missi Pyle), and an eager guidance counselor who tries to help with her ambitious college admissions hinging in part on the outcome of the chaotic film project. This film is part of the New Filmmakers Forum Emerging Directors competition.
