Details

Marieme is 16 and black, living in the high-rise suburbs of Paris. She is at an age when life should be full of possibilities, but finds herself boxed in by society’s expectations, peer pressure and limited opportunities. Excluded from school and wary of her violent older brother, Marieme takes sanctuary in a girl gang, renaming herself ‘Vic’ for Victory. The film follows her changing appearance and growing confidence as she moves from timid schoolgirl to defiant, leather-clad gang member. Told with brash energy and a blistering soundtrack, Girlhood is another brilliant example of Céline Sciamma’s unique insight into female relationships.
