Girlhood interview with director Celine Sciamma

Girlhood centres on rebellious French teenager Marieme as she quits school and joins a girl gang in Paris. This film is a different look at a familiar genre and we sent reporter Eronita to the BFI London Film Festival to meet with the film's director Celine Sciamma. Watch this video as Celine explains to Eronita how she went about casting unknowns for her film, and why all young people should watch foreign language cinema.
