In the Congo, passing the national baccalaureate exam can save a young person from a life of manual labor and open the doors to university and a career. To fail the exam is to be fated to struggle for survival through menial work. As Congolese filmmaker Dieudo Hamadi’s documentary National Diploma so powerfully shows, the path to success in the national exam is full of challenges. We see a school principal come into a prep classroom and summon those students…

With Being 17, the great French writer-director André Téchiné returns to the subject matter of his masterpiece Wild Reeds, a 1994 feature about the sexual awakening of a handful of teenagers in the rural southwest of France during the Algerian war, and a landmark in the representation of gay youth in French cinema.

Though bravely realistic, Swiss director Claude Barras’s charming stopmotion animated film is an unexpectedly uplifting look at childhood tragedy. After his alcoholic mother’s death, nine-year-old Icare—known to his friends as Zucchini—is placed in a group home where he soon forms alliances and rivalries with a group of kids in equally difficult circumstances, including the son of drug addicts and the daughter of a deported refugee.
