La Mif15

Directed by Fred Baillif | Switzerland | 2021 | 1h 52m | French w/ English subtitles | Starring Charlie Areddy, Kassia Da Costa, Amandine Golay, Claudia Grob

Recently placed into care, a group of teenage girls develop a close sisterly bond as they get used to their new home. Drawing on his own past as a social worker, Fred Baillif’s award-winning feature is a bristling social realist drama about the unexpected tensions and intimacies of life in a Geneva foster home. Winner of the Grand Prix Generation 14plus International Jury Prize at the Berlin International Film Festival 2021.


‘Powered by skittering, unpredictable energy and adolescent emotional eruptions, it’s a smartly structured portrait of a de facto family unit’
Wendy Ide, The Observer

‘A riveting and bristling examination of trauma and the need for familial intimacy.’
Leila Latif, Little White Lies

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
