Join us for the DC premiere of Scottish-based playwright and performer Adura Onashile’s first feature film. Girl delicately tells the story of 11 year-old Ama and her mother, Grace, who take solace in an isolated world they obsessively create. After harrowing experiences in their homeland of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, mother and daughter try to find refuge in a sometimes hostile area of Glasgow. But Ama’s thirst for life and her need to grow and develop challenges the rules of their insular world and gradually forces Grace to reckon with a past she struggles to forget.  (Adura Onashile, 2023, DCP, 87 minutes)
