SCHOOLS SCREENING: Gagarine

Tuesday 19th October, 2021 - 11:00

| €6 per student  (Teachers Free)

A beautiful tale of community, friendship and dreaming big. Teenager Yuri lives at Gargarine, a housing project on the outskirts of Paris. He dreams of becoming an astronaut just like his and the building’s namesake, Yuri Gagarin. When the building is condemned for demolition, Yuri, along with his friends Houssam and Diana, embark on creating their own starship.  Reality and imagination merge in the Parisian suburbs, as our modern astronaut reminds us what it means to call somewhere home.

Directors:  Fanny Liatard, Jérémy Trouilh

REVIEWS: “This mesmerising debut about a teenager looking to fix up his Paris estate passes up the usual angry social-realism in favour of something more celestial.” 4/5 – Guardian
