question one of the best films of 2015, Celine Sciamma’s film “Girlhood” is
genuinely worthy of all the praise that it has gotten. Just read Wendy
Okoi-Obuli’s review for the film back in January HERE
And as I
said before about the film, when you think about it, there have been,
pathetically, few serious films that deal with young black women, which makes
“Girlhood” even more important.
its limited theatrical run earlier this year Strand Releasing has announced
that it will be releasing the film on blu-ray DVD on May 19th.
the DVD will offer few in the form of extras with just the theatrical trailer (which
you can watch below) and an interview with lead actress Karidja Touré. But, nevertheless, here’s your opportunity to
see finally a superb film that will resonate long after the emtionally powerful final scene
