La Mif (15)

Still image from La Mif

Fred Baillif's award-winning third fiction feature is a bristling, contemporary drama set in a teenage girls' residential care home in Geneva.

Drawing on his own past experience as a street social worker with the ensemble cast composed of non-professional actors, La Mif follows the fallout of an incident which triggers a chain of over-reactions resulting in a powerful and emotional examination of the impacts of abuse and the morals and ethics of social care.

A festival favourite, La Mif had its world premiere at the 2021 Berlin Film Festival where it won the Generation 14Plus Grand Prix for best film.
