SWAGGER BY OLIVIER BABINET
2016 - France - 84 min
In French with English subtitles
The Cultural Services of the French Embassy present the 2016 film Swagger by Olivier Babinet as part of the French film series "Coming of Age". From the fifties to today, in high and low places, this series presents contrasted views of the tumultuous time that is adolescence, between growth and challenges..
Swagger takes us into the minds of eleven children and adolescents who are growing up within some of France's most underprivileged housing projects. Shot in bold colors, with a score by Jean-Benoît Dunckel of French electronic duo Air, the film shows us the world through these kids' singular and unexpected gazes and their funny and incisive thoughts. By using a mosaic of encounters and by mixing genres, even musicals and science fiction, Swagger gives life to the words and fantasies of this often overlooked side of French youth. Because, despite the difficulties of their lives, they have dreams and ambitions. And no one can take this away from them.
Online registration is required for this screening.
