SPECIAL SCREENING of 'Divines' PRESENTED BY THE DIRECTOR herself, the Camera d'Or prize winning Houda Benyamina, on Friday 16th December!
We'll meet at 8pm at the Cinema to enjoy a cocktail (4,50€) which will give us chance to meet and talk before Houda Benyamina (the director) speaks about the film at 9pm with the screening starting shortly after.
'In a ghetto where religion and drug trafficking rub shoulders, Dounia has a lust for power and success. Supported by Maimouna, her best friend, she decides to follow in the footsteps of Rebecca, a respected dealer. Her encounter with Djigui, a young, disturbingly sensual dancer, throws her off course.'
- Official synopsis
"This tough, feisty French disaffected youth drama, crackles with attitude, anger and lust for life. Divines does something more than simply storyboarding the pressure-cooker frustrations of young people with nowhere to go (...) Fizzing with ideas, as difficult to pin down as its heroine, Divines keeps generating electricity long after the lights have gone down."
- Lee Marshall, Screendaily
