Youri, 16, has lived all his life in Gagarine Cité, 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, Youri joins the resistance. With his friends Diana & Houssam, he embarks on a mission to save Gagarine, transforming the estate into his own "starship" – before it disappears into space forever. The film was shot on the cusp of the actual demolition of the Cité Gagarine housing project in collaboration with its residents in Ivry-sur-Seine. Gagarine is directed by two up-and-coming French filmmakers Fanny Liatard & Jérémy Trouilh, both making their feature debut after a few other short films previously. The screenplay is written by Fanny Liatard & Jérémy Trouilh & Benjamin Charbit. The film was originally selected for the 2020 Cannes Film Festival before it was cancelled, it later premiered at the Zurich & Hamburg Film Festivals in late 2020 and stopped by a few other fests as well. Cohen Media Group opens Gagarine in select US theaters starting April 1st, 2022 this spring. Who's interested in watching?
