France / Olivier Babinet / 2016 / Documentary / 84 min. / OmeU
Both optimistic and ominous, teen docu-drama, SWAGGER, is a glimpse into the astonishing minds and imaginations of eleven young people growing up in some of the most underprivileged neighborhoods in France. Through interviews, comedy, science fiction and music, we watch the kids of Sevran and Aulnay ponder their French identity, other minority groups, money troubles, moral dilemmas and how to achieve their ambitions. They all have big dreams, but what will win out – the challenges they face at every turn or their seemingly unassailable determination? Trailer
The screening will be followed by a Q&A session.
