France | 2014 | col | dir. Céline Sciamma, with Karidja Touré, Assa Sylla, Lindsay Karamoh, Mariétou Touré

Céline Sciamma continues her exploration of the effects of social conventions on delicately forming female identities in her triumphant third film. Oppressed by her family settings, dead-end school prospects and the ruling boys in the neighbourhood, Marieme starts a new life after meeting a group of free-spirited girls. She changes her name, her dress code, and quits school to become part of the gang, hoping that this will be her way to freedom.
