This visually stunning documentary follows the life, dreams and ambitions of eleven teenagers growing up in an underprivileged neighbourhood in France. Director Olivier Babinet’s (ROBERT MITCHUM IS DEAD, 2010; C’ÉTAIT LE CHIEN D’EDDY, 2003) original take swaps a direct exposé of life on the streets for a tenderly candid approach where individual character portraits explore the personalities and aspirations of its young subjects. One-on-one interviews are intercut with purely fictional scenarios, where flights of fancy communicate the youths’ unique selves to the audience. Music by Jean-Benoit Dunckel, member of the popular music group Air, adds to the magic of this stand-out documentary about a class of French youth who are determined to fulfill their dreams even when the cards are stacked against them. The result is a real-life coming-of-age tale filled with sincerity, humour and fantastical imagery that reflect the enduring nature of childhood imagination and hope against the odds.
This film is part of our programme for children and youths.
