A film is to be shot in Cité Picasso, in Boulogne-Sur-Mer, in the north of France. During the casting, four teenagers, Lily, Ryan, Maylis and Jessy are chosen to play a part in the film. Everyone in the neighborhood is astonished: why did they only take "the worst ones"?

Mallory Wanecque, Timéo Mahaut, Johan Heldenbergh, Loïc Pech, Mélina Vanderplancke

 

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR

Lise Akoka studied Psychology at University and completed a professional training in acting (Les Ateliers du Sudden and the Studio-théâtre d’Asnières). She then discovered, in casting and coaching children for the cinema, a way of bringing together her two interests.

Romane Gueret, after studying cinema at La Sorbonne, took her first steps towards directing, as an assistant director, casting assistant and camerawoman.

Romane and Lise met in 2014 during the casting of a feature film, for which they auditioned more than 4000 young non-professional actors for several months. In 2015, they co-directed the short film Chasse Royale, awarded in several festivals and which won the Illy Award at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight in 2016. The film was nominated a year later at the César for Best Short film. In 2018, they co-directed the documentary Allez garçon! for the Hobbies collection, which was broadcast in 2019 on Canal+. In 2020, their web series Tu préfères, 10 episodes of 7 minutes, is broadcast on Arte and then selected at the Sundance Festival. In the summer of 2021, they made their first feature film, Les Pires, shot in Boulogne-sur-Mer and selected at Un Certain Regard at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.
