Set in the contradictory world of early 1990s Spain, Schoolgirls tells the story of Celia, an 11-year-old girl who studies at an all-girls Catholic school.

Under the oppressive control of the school’s nuns, she tries her best not to make a fuss. She is obedient, thoughtful and a responsible student. But the onset of puberty throws changes at the young Celia, and the sudden arrival of a new classmate, Brisa, shakes up her comfortable world.

Go Youth! 

Stalwart Mexican director Carlos Armella celebrates being young with Go Youth!, a vibrant coming-of-age comedy that explores the dreams and fears of teenagers rebelling against the adult world. Inspired by life in Mexico City and Armella’s memories of his own adolescence, the film lovingly brings its four central characters to life.

This movie is rated 15+



The Good Intentions

Ana García Blaya’s charming The Good Intentions follows a child forced to take action when her parents’ divorce threatens to separate her from her beloved father. Set in Argentina during the economic slump of the 1990s, Amanda (Amanda Minujin) is 10 years old, with two younger siblings and parents Cecilia (Jazmin Stuart) and Gustavo (Javier Drolas) who are like chalk and cheese. While Cecilia offers a more traditionally stable home, slacker Gustavo co-owns a record store which struggles to provide him with the means to pay child support.
