Synopsis : 

Whilst eleven-year-old tom boy Tony loves being with her boxer brother, she wants to be part of the team of a girl dance troupe. However, there seems to be a rite of passage she hadn’t bargained for.

This is a story depicting black girlhood which is not often seen in film. Whilst there are some indications of disenfranchisement, these are in the background of the narrative where the girls take centre stage.

The Fits forms part of the schedule in the Theme, Sugar And Spice And All Things Black Girl. After this screening there will be a panel discussion about the representation of black girlhood in film. Do follow our social media and our website for updates about panellists.
