La Mif

La Mif is a bristling contemporary drama set in a teenage girls’ residential home in Geneva. As both tensions and intimacies are created, an incident triggers a chain of over- reactions resulting in a powerful and emotional examination of the impact of abuse, coming of age and the morals and ethics of social care.

Fred Baillif’s third fiction feature was developed over two years and drew on his own past experience as a street social worker. He worked with real residents and staff in a care home to play the fictional characters with the ensemble cast composed of non-professional actors.
