GIRLHOOD
October 17th @ 6pm
Templeton Campus Center – Council Chamber

The Lewis & Clark International Film Festival (LCIFF) is proud to present the critically acclaimed GIRLHOOD as its opening night film.

Fed up with her abusive family situation, lack of school prospects and the “boys’ law” in the neighborhood, Marieme starts a new life after meeting a group of three free-spirited girls. She changes her name, her style, drops out of school and starts stealing to be accepted into the gang. When her home situation becomes unbearable, Marieme seeks solace in an older man who promises her money and protection. Realizing this sort of lifestyle will never result in the freedom and independence she truly desires, she finally decides to take matters into her own hands.

Directed by Céline Sciamma; Not Rated; 112 minutes; 2015

The Lewis & Clark International Film Festival is funded by the Student Academic Affairs Board.
