La Mif (2021)

Drama 1h 50m 2021

Sat 9 Oct 11:45-13:35

Writer and director Fred Baillif adopts a bold approach to storytelling to create a drama that bristles with a rare intensity and dangerous energy, conveying the state of being for seven teenage girls living in residential care in Geneva. A former social worker himself, Baillif worked with a nonprofessional cast made up of people with direct experience of social care, an approach that garnered raw but persuasive performances crackling with authenticity. Each is woven into chapters, with events repeated from each character’s perspective, incrementally revealing layers of insight and nuance. The result is a powerful and emotional examination of the impacts of abuse, coming of age, and the morals and ethics of social care. Stuart Brown
