Tuesday French Movie Night: Tomboy, Alliance Française de San Francisco, Tuesday, 25. June 2019

Tuesday Movie Night !!!
Every Tuesday we organize a screening of a Francophone movie with English subtitles.

“Tomboy” by Celine Sciamma (2011)
With: Zoe Heran , Jeanne Disson
Genre: Drama
A family moves into a new neighborhood, and a 10-year-old born Laure deliberately presents as a boy named Mikhael to the neighborhood children. It is heavily implied that Mikhael is a closeted transgender boy. This film follows his experiences with his newfound friends, his potential love interest, Lisa, his younger sister and his parents. It focuses in on the significance of gender identity in social interaction from an early age, the difficulties of being transgender and young, and how Mikhael navigates these in the background of childhood play and love.

Laure a 10 ans. Laure est un garçon manqué. Arrivée dans un nouveau quartier, elle fait croire à Lisa et sa bande qu’elle est un garçon. Action ou vérité ? Action. L’été devient un grand terrain de jeu et Laure devient Michael, un garçon comme les autres… suffisamment différent pour attirer l’attention de Lisa qui en tombe amoureuse. Laure profite de sa nouvelle identité comme si la fin de l’été n’allait jamais révéler son troublant secret.

The theater doors open 15 minutes before the movie starts. You are welcome to wait in the library if you arrive before then.
The movie is free but we appreciate a donation of $5 to support our movie nights.
See you there!
