About the Film

The public housing projects in the banlieues outside Paris have been the setting for many a gritty saga of desperation and despair. Swagger is not one of those movies. Instead, this joyously innovative documentary immerses viewers in the hopes, dreams, and rich inner lives of eleven teenagers growing up in one of France’s most diverse neighborhoods.

Event will take place at the Lenfest Center for the Arts. Event is free and open to the public.
