April 12th 1961 - Yuri Gagarin is about to see what no other person has seen in the history of humanity - the Earth from space. In the next 108 minutes he'll see more than most people do in a lifetime. What sights await the first cosmonaut silently gliding over the world below? What will it be like to view the oceans and continents sailing by from such a height? In a unique collaboration with the European Space Agency, and the Expedition 26/ 27 crew of the International Space Station, First Orbit recreates a new HD view of what Gagarin first witnessed. Combined with the original voice recordings (subtitled into 17 languages) and an original score by composer Philip Sheppard, this spellbinding film captures a unique moment in our shared human history.
