First Orbit

I missed this a few months ago when it came out, but it’s pretty neat: First Orbit, a film made in space following Yuri Gagarin’s flight path as the first human ever to orbit our world:

The creators want to translate this film into as many languages as possible, and they’re looking for help. It seems like a pretty good idea; this year is the 50th anniversary of Gagarin’s flight, and it’s appropriate that as many people get to experience this as possible.
