Bande de filles

Fortnight 2014, Feature film, 1h52

Synopsis

Oppressed by her family setting, dead-end school prospects and the boys law in the neighborhood, Marieme starts a new life after meeting a group of 3 free-spirited girls. She changes her name, her dress code, and quits school to be accepted in the gang, hoping that this will be a way to freedom.

Director

Céline Sciamma

Céline Sciamma’s first film Water Lilies attracted attention at the 2007 Cannes Festival in the section Un Certain Regard and won the Louis Delluc Prize for a first film. It was followed in 2011 by Tomboy, selected for the Berlin Festival, and subsequently enjoyed a successful french and international career, (selling to 35 territories). Bande de filles is her third film.
