French film Fest: Dreams, Escapes and Survival – Brooklyn

Fri, Mar 18 / 9 pm
Directed by Pascal Tessaud
2014, France, 83 min
French w/ English Subtitles

Dreams, Escapes and Survival is a French film festival organized by Alliance Française du Manitoba and Winnipeg Cinematheque to mark the 20th edition of the French Language and Francophony week. It is an invitation to discover films from different times and experience some sophisticated, vibrant and daring films from France. With the support of Institut Français this is the 2nd edition of the festival (in 2015, its title was Secrets, Lies and Betrayal).

Not to be confused with the Fox drama starring Saoirse Ronan, this French film Brooklyn follows an aspiring young female rapper as she wades into the multi-ethnic hip-hop scene of the northern Paris district Seine-Saint-Denis aka 93. Brooklyn is a musical film, 100% Hip Hop, 100% independent. Playing the lead role is a talented 22-year-old rapper, KT GORIQUE, World Freestyle Champion at the End of the Weak contest in New York in 2012, and the only female recipient of this award to this day.
