Teenager Youri has grown up in the tight-knit housing project known as Cite’ Gagarine, (located in one of the communist municipalities that formed a “red belt” around Paris, and named after the famed Russian cosmonaut who inaugurated it in 1963). From the heights of Youri’s apartment window, the wiz-kid dreams of becoming an astronaut. But when plans to demolish the complex are leaked, Youri embarks on a mission to save Gagarine, resolved to preserve both the building and its community.

GAGARINE currently holds a 95% Fresh Critical Rating on RottenTomatoes.com!

“A well-crafted mystical odyssey both emotionally poignant and aesthetically profound, GAGARINE blends the dilapidated reality of its crumbling complex with the quiet possibilities of Yuri’s space fantasies, set to a moody, atmospheric score.” – Nicholas Bell, IONCINEMA.COM

“It’s a piece of urban history seen through the lens of magic realism, a fragile but beguiling fantasy, tethered now and then to gritty reality, about a do-gooder doing the best he can against daunting odds.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
