Tournées Film Festival: ‘Bande de Filles’ (France, 2014)
February 23, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
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.
