We’re kicking off the week with another giveaway courtesy of TIFF: We have run of engagement passes to see the new French film Girlhood, which opens at the Bell Lightbox this Friday. See below for more info.
Céline Sciamma’s (Tomboy) film centres on Marieme (Karidja Touré), a shy sixteen-year-old coping with peer pressure from her new crew of friends while facing down the seemingly dead-end prospects of life in her nondescript housing project. Marieme finds herself navigating dangerous waters, but it isn’t long before she finds a way to assert a new-found empowerment.
