When Parvaneh shaves away the hair on her upper lip and between her eyebrows, her parents are livid.

The boy next door thinks Parvaneh is fine just as she is, but stands by her side when she risks punishment.

Big Wolf & Little Wolf

France, Belgium 2018. Director: Rémi Durin. Language: French. Subtitle: English. Recommended for age: From age 7.

When Little does disappear, Big Wolf discovers for the first time what it’s like to miss someone.

The School Trip

Italy 2018. Director: Salvatore Allocca. Language: Italian. Subtitle: English. Recommended for age: From age 13.

But her family is from Senegal, and she’s unable to take part in the school trip to Paris because her residence permit hasn’t yet been renewed. As if that wasn’t enough, she’s in love with Marco, who she helps with maths. Here, the film’s music adds feeling and perhaps bodes a happy ending?
