Intandem to Launch Cosmonaut Movie at AFM

LONDON — Intandem Films has added “Gagarin — First in Space” to its sales slate at AFM, where the pic will have its market premiere.

The $10 million movie centers on Yuri Gagarin, the Russian cosmonaut who was the first human being to venture into space in 1961. The film has been timed to mark the 80th anniversary next year of Gagarin’s birth. He died in a mysterious jet fighter crash in 1968. It has a running time of 108 minutes, the exact amount of time Gagarin spent in space orbiting the Earth.

The film was produced by Oleg Kapanets and Igor Tolstunov for Kremlin Films, and is directed by Pavel Parkhomenko. It stars Yaroslav Zhalnin, Mikhail Pilippov and Viktor Proskurin.

Kapanets said: “People are increasingly fascinated by space travel as it becomes more of a reality (for ordinary folk), and this is the story of where it all began.”
