Director Statement The pursuit of other worlds is a desire as old as humankind. Every time a rocket gets launched into space this deep desire awakens. Creativity makes possible every space we can imagine, and just like Yuri Gagarin, we face this first and deep trip into the Universe during the creative process. Every exploration is a question. “Gagarin, I will miss you” is a small journey that aims afar but falls close into the mystery of the human depth. At the same time thinking about creativity ends up being a question about making movies itself. And maybe it is cinema itself we end up missing every time a movie ends. Surrounded by pictures we have to come back and wonder what is the nature of movies..
