Screening of the film Girlhood (2014) — Directed by Céline Sciamma

Girlhood (French: Bande de filles, Gang of Girls) is a 2014 French drama film directed by Céline Sciamma, starring Karidja Touré. It is a coming of age film that focuses on the life of Marieme (Karidja Touré), a girl who lives in a rough neighborhood right outside of Paris.

The film discusses and challenges conceptions of race, gender and class; Sciamma's goal was to capture the stories of black teenagers, characters she claims are generally underdeveloped in French films. It was screened as part of the Directors' Fortnight section of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.  It was also screened in the Contemporary World Cinema section at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. It received four nominations at the 40th César Awards, including Best Director for Céline Sciamma and Most Promising Actress for Karidja Touré.
