The story of a young man obsessively holding on to his childhood dreams of being an astronaut is the basis of this charming video for Yellow Son's The King Or The Bird directed by Jonathan Cohen.

Full of both artfully homemade gear - like the centrifuge made from a desk chair - and authentic stuff, like a cosmonaut's outfit, our hero also manages to engage his flatmates in his enthusiasm, and get them involved in the build-up to the big launch...

The cast includes Jean-Nicolas Arnoux as the aspiring spaceman, and dancer/comedian Charlotte Bentz. "The cosmonaut's costume has been lent to us by the CNES (thanks!) and Dominique Perrault in person (BNF's architect) gave us his copyright to shoot the French National Library's esplanade," reveals says Nicolas de Rosanbo of Chez Eddy.
