Bande de filles

cert. 15 | by Céline Sciamma with Karidja Touré, Assa Sylla, Lindsay Karamoh, 2014, 113′, feature, in French with English subtitles

Céline Sciamma explores the effects of social conventions on delicately forming female identities in her triumphant third film. Sixteen-year-old Marieme must navigate not only the disruptive onset of womanhood, but also the inequalities of being black and living in the underprivileged suburbs of Paris. Excluded from school and in fear of her overbearing brother at home, she escapes into the shielding environment of girl gang.
