Presented in partnership with Culture Bolt
A teen movie like no other, SWAGGER enters the housing projects of the Parisian suburbs and joins eleven adolescents as they move through their daily routines and share their hopes and dreams with the camera. This is no dry sociological portrait: mixed in are staged sequences depicting incidents from the teenagers' lives and imaginations, with fantastic sights like an impromptu high school fashion show or aliens invading the banlieue. Director Olivier Babinet—who spent more than two years working among these young people—combines his own high-energy sensibility honed from a career in commercials and music videos with that of his teenage collaborators, producing a fresh look at a segment of French society too often reduced to one-dimensional images of crime and poverty.
In French with English subtitles
