SWAGGER

July 15th @ 2pm at the Austin Studios Screening Room - 1901 E 51st, Austin Tx 78723
 

By Olivier Babinet, 2016, France – 84 min – Documentary
With Aïssatou Dia, Mariyama Diallo, Abou Fofana, Nazario Giordano, Astan Gonle, Salimata Gonle, Naïla Hanafi, Aaron N'Kiambi, Régis N'Kissi, Paul Turgot, Elvis Zannou
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

About our partner: Culture Bolt is an adventurous art lab, creative community and support hub for artistic innovation and social progress through the interplay of art, technology and culture. 

Next screening: August 19th - stay tuned!
