“In this soulful Cannes 2020 selection, a breakout Alseni Bathily stars as 16-year-old engineering whiz Yuri, who industriously sets about renovating the housing project where he lives, Cité Gagarine, in hopes of saving it from demolition. With the help of his closest friends (Jamil McCraven and Lyna Khoudri) and an eccentric scrapyard owner (Denis Lavant in a memorable cameo), Yuri slowly reinvigorates his building’s splintered, diverse community, but he can only do so much in the face of an unsympathetic housing board—which compels him to draw some imaginative inspiration from his and his home’s namesake, cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. With dreamlike set pieces and evocative sound design, Gagarine’s flights of the fantastic vibrantly resist the displacement of the marginalized.” -Rendez-Vous With French Cinema
