“Free of cliché, visually ingenious, Gagarine is a pleasure—pure magic realism, a homespun spectacular.” Danny Leigh, Financial Times.

Yuri, 16, has lived all his life in Gagarine Towers, a vast red brick housing project on the outskirts of Paris. From the heights of his apartment, he dreams of becoming an astronaut. But when plans to demolish his community's home are leaked, Yuri joins the resistance. With his friends Diana and Houssam, he embarks on a mission to save Gagarine, transforming the estate into his own "starship."

97 minutes; French with English subtitles
