DIVINES
2016, Netflix, 105 min, France/ Qatar, Dir: Houda Benyamina

Houda Benyamina won the Camera d'Or prize at Cannes for this hard-hitting feature debut. Streetwise teen Dounia (Oulaya Amamra) and her best friend Maimouna (Déborah Lukumuena) live in an immigrant slum on the outskirts of Paris, with few prospects for the future. The two fall into the orbit of local drug dealer Rebecca (Jisca Kalvanda), whose flashy lifestyle proves as dangerous as it is alluring.
