Afrika Eye 2019: Girlhood + poetry & discussion

Director
Céline Sciamma
Certificate
15
Running Time
110 mins

French director Céline Sciamma followed her provocative, sensitively directed gender identity drama Tomboy with another sharply observed character study.

This time, the focus is on Marieme (newcomer Karidja Toure), a black teenager from grim, dead-end La Haine territory, who joins a girl gang in search of freedom and a better life. Go here for our full review.

Curated by Asmaa Jama, this Afrika Eye event includes a screening of the short film Nuraiyah from Bristol-based Kehvyn Ishmail and poetry by Muneera Pilgrim.
