Free

20160128_bande-de-filles-194x250This film screening is presented as part of the Tournées Film Festival, sponsored by the Department of Romance Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Bande de Filles is set in the impoverished French-African banlieues of Paris, where 16-year-old Marieme cares for her two sisters while their mother works the night shift. She falls in with a triad of tough girls, abandoning her braids for straightened hair, her hoodie for a leather jacket – and learning the pleasures of raising hell.

All movie screenings in the festival will take place in the Nelson Mandela Auditorium of the FedEx Global Education Center. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the movie begins at 6:30 p.m. These screenings are free and open to the public. All films will be shown in French with English subtitles.

The festival is co-sponsored by the Center for European Studies and the Department of Asian Studies.
