The Race is On. Gagarin - First In Space, released on DVD on 23rd June 2016 courtesy of Entertainment One, is an emotional and incredible true story of a man's determination and struggle to become the first human being to journey into outer space.
In 1961 Yuri Gagarin blasted off from Vostok, Russia to become the first man in space. It was a mission fraught with danger as he rocketed into unknown territory and an uncertain fate. Part of an elite squad of cosmonauts, Gagarin rose through the ranks his awe-inspiring bravery setting him apart as the best of the best.
At last the epic story of this visionary pioneer is brought to the screen in Gagarin, an awe-inspiring story of what can happen when you reach for the stars.
Very much in the tradition Hollywood blockbusters such as Gravity, Apollo 13 and The Right Stuff, Gagarin - First In Space is a beautifully realised and magnificently shot space saga that tells the true story of the man whose heroism opened the door to man's conquest of the stars. Released to coincide with the 80th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's birth, the filmmakers have also added a sweet touch, editing the film to run at 108 minutes, exactly the same amount of time Gagarin spent in space orbiting the earth.
