Festival Programme

Films by Strand


Films that examine the experiences and influences that shape a life. Youthful explorations of identity, the nascent sexuality of young adults, stresses and successes in early careers, the first flexing of newfound liberation; the nations and situations these films survey may be diverse, but all depict potent elements of emerging identity.


Fanny Liatard, Jérémy Trouilh

A soon-to-be-demolished social housing estate, named after Yuri Gagarin, in the Parisian banlieue provides the earthly anchor for weightless flights of fancy in this wondrous and moving debut feature.
