Pay As You Feel: GIRLHOOD
March 27 @ 19:45 - 22:00
Pay As You Feel: GIRLHOOD d. Céline Sciamma, 2014 presented by Screen25 Cinema at Harris Academy South Norwood (27 MAR 19:45):
Visionary Women is back for a second year, and it’s bigger, bolder and more beautiful than ever. We’re planning to celebrate Women’s History Month this March by showcasing iconic and awe-inspiring women from across the globe.
Channelling the abrasive spirit of suburban youth found in predecessors like LA HAINE, GIRLHOOD is an extraordinary study of one African-French teenager’s transition to womanhood. Marieme struggles at school and is abused by her brother, leading her to seek companionship in a group of girls who live on her estate. They love, live and laugh together, before petty crime begins to complicate matters.
Complete with Céline Sciamma’s typically deep explorations of race, gender and class, this is realism at its most engrossing.
Girlhood recently came top of our special Women’s History Month Pay As You Feel poll, and we’re very happy to be partnering with Croydon and Bromley Women’s Aid for this screening. They will be running a post-film workshop on their initiatives in the local area.
