We Grew up Together


The Gagarin housing project is an iconic symbol in Ivry Sur Seine in the inner suburbs of Paris, which was destroyed in 2020. The film brings it back to life through the words of its former residents and the lens of Adnane Tragha who grew up across from it and evokes memories of the housing project. Daniel, Loïc, Karima, Yvette, Foued, Samira, and Mehdy tell their stories and relive their feelings. Difficulties, as well as solidarity, stigmas as well as mutual aid, and good memories, as well as bad ones across time and experiences, are touched upon. “We grew up together” paints, in small personal touches, the history of a housing project like so many others, and becomes a hymn to working-class neighborhoods.
