Bande de Filles

October 24, 2014

Oppressed by her family setting, dead-end school prospects, and the boys 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. A spectacular and engrossing coming-of-age film from Tomboy director Sciamma.
