Synopsis: This short film ‘The First Yugoslavian Cosmonaut’ is part of the Road to Gagarin project by photographer/film-maker Rene Nuijens and writer Steve Korver. By documenting the major settings of the bizarre and dramatic life of Yuri Gagarin (1934-68), the first man in space, we are out to capture the essence of the man who is dead, and his myth which is very much alive – and still inspiring much love, art and conspiracy theories. The short film ‘The First Yugoslavian Cosmonaut’ was made for the 51st anniversary of human space flight. It’s a about a Belgrade boy who dreamed about being the First Yugoslav in space. Sadly as a kid he got already sick on children-swings.
