What is the Céline Sciamma Challenge?
Céline Sciamma’s fourth film, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, is her major international breakout film, and was the inspiration for our forthcoming ebook on Sciamma’s work. An excellent film in its own right, Portrait is even more interesting in context with the rest of her work.
We’re challenging you to catch up with her first three films by watching one per week, in chronological order, for the next three weeks. We’ll help you locate how to watch the films, offer guidance about things to look for, and cheer you on with a weekly email about each film. Join us every Sunday on Twitter for a discussion on the film with hashtag #SciammaChallenge.
Week 1: Watch Water Lilies (2007)
Week 2: Watch Tomboy (2011)
Week 3: Watch Girlhood (2014)
