BFI London Film Festival: Girlhood

Street gangs and growing pains

In her third directorial outing, Céline Sciamma continues to explore social conventions from a female perspective. Karidja Touré plays Marieme, a 16-year-old facing up to womanhood on the streets of Paris. As a black, underprivileged teen, coming of age isn’t the only issue she must address. After joining a girl gang for protection, Marieme assumes a nom de guerre and alters her appearance to suit. Girlhood is split into four distinct sections, each of which beautifully mirrors an aspect of Marieme’s chameleonic lifestyle.
