[⏵] Between tower block and orbit: the story of a young fan of space travel from the banlieue is an expedition into the power of the imagination – poetic, playful and full of quirky moments. 16-year old Yuri has spent his whole life in the Cité Gagarine, a council estate from the 1960s on the edge of Paris. Like the eponym of the estate, Yuri dreams of one day lifting off into space and escaping the drabness. But when plans are announced to tear down the estate, he joins the resistance. Together with his friend Houssam and his neighbour Diana, he sets out to save Gagarine – and transforms his flat into a space station.
