GIRLHOOD

Director: CÉLINE SCIAMMA

112 mins, FRANCE, 2014, Drama. English Subtitles.


Our French choice for this term is a potent coming-of-age story that focuses on a group of black girls living in the tower blocks of Paris. At the centre is Marieme, who has troubles at home, limited job prospects and is intimidated by the boys in her neighbourhood. Things change when she is drawn to an uncompromising, wilful teenage girl gang who eventually take her seriously. The free study guide focuses on themes of friendship, identity, choices and being young in Paris.
