Girlhood Film Screening


MCA Denver
1485 Delgany St.

Inspired by the women in front of and behind the camera currently on view at the museum, MCA Denver, in partnership with Denver Film, presents Depth of Field, a series celebrating female cinematographers. Highlighting often unacknowledged women’s labor and the efforts of cinematographers more broadly, this series provides a sampling of the work of contemporary female cinematographers.


Screenings will take place at MCA Denver and the Sie FilmCenter.

On Tuesday, February 25, join us for a screening of GIRLHOOD.

Faced with bleak future prospects, Marieme joins a local girl gang to escape her abusive home life and reinvent herself, making some poor decisions along the way. A coming of age story from the director of Portrait of a Lady on Fire highlighting the roles race, gender, and class play in growing up. 
Cinematography by Crystel Fournier, who had previously worked with Céline Sciamma on Tomboy and Water Lilies.
 Followed by a brief discussion with teen female filmmakers, organized by Sarah Blake, DSA student and current member of MCA Denver’s teen leadership program Failure Lab.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Street parking is limited. The garage directly across 15th Street is $5 after 4pm. The museum is walking distance from Union Station and the 16th Street Free Mall Ride. Please don't drive if you plan on drinking.

What if I'm really really thirsty before the event?

We have happy hour up in the cafe from 5–7PM. We recommend you grab a drink before the screening begins, and you're welcome to bring it down to the Whole Room.

Can I check out the galleries after the talk?

Unfortunately, the galleries will close at 7PM when the screening begins. We recommend checking out the galleries beforehand, but you can also bring your GIRLHOOD ticket back for free admission to the museum within a month after the screening.
