Celebrating Black Cinema. Acclaimed drama about French gang life

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.

Celebrating Black Cinema
Thanks to funding from the BFI Film Audience Network, we were due to celebrate Black Cinema with a season of films in 2020 and then 2021, so we are glad to finally be able to do so. Celebrating milestones in black cinema, some classics and highlighting social issues. This season is a great opportunity to see these films through a modern lens on the big screen.
