2020, 95 min


Sixteen-year-old Youri has spent his whole life in a high-rise building on the outskirts of Paris, part of a residential block named Gagarine in honour of the first cosmonaut. The skilful youngster, who dreams of journeying into space, is an active member of the local community. When he discovers that the housing complex is earmarked for demolition, Youri decides to act... A touching, formally inventive debut from directing duo Liatard and Trouilh about perseverance, the connection to a specific place and the power of imagination.
