At 17, Clare is bright, vivacious and... pregnant. Changing any of them is tough on the mind, and she will not.
The Alliance Francaise of Hyderabad, in collaboration with the Hyderabad Film Club and the French Embassy in India, is screening a French film called Sequins this evening.
The film is about Clare, who at the tender age of 17 learns that she is five months pregnant, and decides to give birth anonymously. She finds refuge with Madame Melikian, an embroiderer for haute couture designers. And, day by day, stitch by stitch, as Claire's belly grows rounder, the threads of embroidery create a filial bond between them.
The movie is directed by Eleanor Faucher, and has Lola Naymak and Ariane Ascaride as the central characters.
