This lovely, moving feature debut, included in the Official Selection for Cannes 2020, sets its scene in Cité Gagarine – a vast red brick housing project on the outskirts of Paris – concocting a fantastical fiction around its real-life demolition in August 2019. 16-year-old Yuri has lived there all his life, but when plans to demolish it are leaked, Yuri joins with friends in an attempt to save it. Wildly imaginative, Gagarine explores themes of isolation and community, how we communicate with buildings, how they entwine with our memories and how we cope with the effects of forces outside our control. It’s a tender study of stratospheric aspirations thriving against the odds.
