11-year-old Celia goes through life doing what she’s told – until she meets Brisa. As the new girl in class at the strict catholic school, Brisa brings with her an air of big city sophistication and an infectious eagerness to dive into adulthood. For Celia, this new friendship opens up a world she never knew existed. Featuring remarkable performances from its young leads and a production design that immediately transports the audience to early 90s Spain, SCHOOLGIRLS is a sensitive, nuanced and immensely charming coming-of-age drama.
Pilar Palomero (Spain) SCHOOLGIRLS is Palomero’s first feature film.
