GAGARINE

Director: JÉRÉMY TROUILH, FANNY LIATARD

2020, 97'

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” – before it disappears into space forever.

Fanny Liatard, Jérémy Trouilh studied together at the School of Political Science in Bordeaux. They switched to filmmaking later through traveling and meeting people who made the dream more accessible. In 2014, they won a screenwriting contest that allowed them to make their first short, «Gagarine», which screened at numerous festivals. Then came «La République des enchanteurs» (2016) and César Award nominated «Chien Blue» (2018). «Gagarine» is their feature debut.
