Tomboy is a touching drama written and directed by Céline Sciamma that follows the difficulties of childhood sexuality and gender identity as tomboy Laure moves to a new neighborhood and a new identity. Sciamma’s film tenderly treats its subject with honest and heartfelt representations of the many emotions and transformations of adolescence.

Discussion will focus on analyzing the relationships between gender and sexuality, love and friendship, body and performance. We will also address the intersections of gender, sexuality, race, and class as well as the different ways that film has represented sexuality across cultures, schools of cinema, film technologies, and history.

These screenings are part of the DLCL Film Series DLCL 152A/354A, which undergraduates and undergraduates can take for one unit C/NC. All screenings are free and open to the public and audience members are encouraged to participate in the discussions following the films. Please be aware that some films may include graphic or disturbing content: viewers are therefore advised to familiarize themselves with the films' content before viewing. May be repeated for credit.
