Plot

First feature by Fanny Liatard and Jérémy Trouilh, which is based on the short film of the same name, which they made after having made a series of documentary portraits about the inhabitants of the so-called Cité Gagarine, in 2015, at the request of some commissioned architect friends to carry out a study on the future demolition of the urbanisation. 'Gagarine' was shot in 2019, shortly before the demolition of old Urban Action Program

Youri (Alseni Bathily) is 16 years old and has lived all her life in the Gagarine Towers, in Urban Action Program located in Ivry-sur-Seine, a commune adjoining the 13th arrondissement of Paris. His dream is to become an astronaut. When he learns of the plans to demolish the entire apartment block, Youri embarks with his friends Diana (Lyna Khoudri) and Houssan (Jamil McCraven) on a mission to save the building, transforming it into his peculiar 'spaceship' before to disappear into space forever.
