Introduction

Céline Sciamma is truly a filmmaker on fire. Her latest film, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, is receiving great acclaim and firmly establishes her as one of finest filmmakers working today. There’s never been a better time to discover Sciamma, or return to her earlier work, including a fascinating self-described coming-of-age trilogy, deftly exploring themes of identity and sexuality. Enjoy.
