GAGARINE (2020)

Drama 1h 37m

Cannes Film Festival Official Selection (2020)

Youri, 16, has lived all his life in Gagarine Cité, a vast red brick housing project on the outskirts of Paris. He dreams of becoming an astronaut. When plans to demolish his community’s home are leaked, Youri joins the resistance. With his friends, he embarks on a mission to save their home, 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.
