From the heights of his apartment in Gagarine Cité Yuri dreams of becoming an astronaut. He has lived all his life in this vast housing project on the outskirts of Paris, so when he hears of plans to demolish it, he embarks on a mission to save his home and his community. He transforms the estate into his own ‘starship’ – before it disappears into space forever.

Shot on the cusp of the actual demolition of the Cité Gagarine, this stellar debut moves beautifully between the urban reality of life in a near-derelict housing project and dreamlike sequences that bring Yuri’s aspirations to life. Part survival story, part wondrous fantasy Gagarine is a sweet, sentimental film set to a moody, atmospheric score. With the world erupting in chaos and corruption, the safest place to be is up in the stars.
