Gagarin by Russian filmmaker Alexij Khartidi won the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1995 and was also nominated for a Best Short Animation Oscar in 1996. It is a very simple, short and sweet hand-drawn animation about a caterpillar yearning to fly like the butterflies and birds, but unable to do so. It is also a lesson on being careful what you wish for, because he gets his chance to fly. The Russian animator Alexij Khartidi now lives in Canada and continues to animate. If you like Gagarin, rate and share it.
