Garçons manqués

Imane is 15 year old and lives with her family in the housing statement „Les Bosquets“ in the suburb „Montfermeil“, at the edge of Paris - the place where the riots started in october 2005. The football ground is a cental place for the citizens of „Les Bosquets“, where everyday life takes place. Imane plays soccer and has the reputation to be a „garçon manqué“ - a tom boy. She would like to become a police woman to show that Arabs are not merely troublemakers. But when the riots break out again, she comes to terms with her identity.

"The clear and consistent view of this documentation on a surprisingly determined and reflected youth belongs to the highlights of the German short film. We would like to see more!"
- Excerpt from the press release of the Film Assessment Board „FBW“ for awarding the predicate "highly recommanded"
