‘In a ghetto where religion and drug trafficking rub shoulders, Dounia has a lust for power and success. Supported by Maimouna, her best friend, she decides to follow in the footsteps of Rebecca, a respected dealer. Her encounter with Djigui, a young, disturbingly sensual dancer, throws her off course.’

– Official synopsis

“This tough, feisty French disaffected youth drama, crackles with attitude, anger and lust for life. Divines does something more than simply storyboarding the pressure-cooker frustrations of young people with nowhere to go (…) Fizzing with ideas, as difficult to pin down as its heroine, Divines keeps generating electricity long after the lights have gone down.”

– Lee Marshall, Screendaily

Divines‘ has undoubtedly been one of France’s biggest box office hits of 2016. If you haven’t seen it already – and even if you have – this is your chance to see the film in true Parisian style with English subtitles and unparalleled insight delivered by none-other than the young and acclaimed director!
