About the Film

Director: Olivier Babinet
Actors: Aïssatou Dia, Mariyama Diallo, Abou Fofana

A teen-movie documentary, Swagger carries us in the midst of the astonishing minds of eleven teenagers growing up in one of the most underprivileged neighborhood in France. Despite their life difficulties, Aulnay's and Sevran's kids have dreams and ambitions. And no one will take that from them!

Praise

The film was nominated 6 times and won 2 awards, including Best Film at the 2017 Quebec City International Film Festival and the Nigel Moore Award at the 2017 DOXA Documentary Film Festival.

A visually striking, atypical portrait of French youth.
