Gagarine (Gagarin) directed by Fanny Liatard, Jérémy Trouilh

The French drama Gagarine (Gagarin), the feature film debut of Fanny Liatard and Jérémy Trouilh centers on 16-year-old Youri, a resourceful teenager in the midst of massive change when the only home he’s ever known is threatened with destruction

The film stars Alseni Bathily, Lyna Khoudri, Jamil McCraven, Finnegan Oldfield.

Gagarine, an official selection of Cannes Film Festival, Rendez-Vous with French Cinema and nominated for the European Discovery at the 33rd European Film Awards, opens in select cinemas starting Friday, April 1, 2022.

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 and Houssam, he embarks on a mission to save Gagarine, transforming the estate into his own “starship” – before it disappears into space forever.

Gagarine was shot on the cusp of the actual demolition of the Cité Gagarine housing project in collaboration with its residents in Ivry-sur-Seine.
