Julia, a young woman living in social housing who has a poor relationship with her mother; passionate about the sport of motocross, she tries to gain the opportunity to participate in the sport by posing as a buyer on shopping websites so that she can take bikes out for test rides. As she becomes drawn deeper into the urban motocross scene, however, she begins to participate in a motorcycle theft ring.

Note: Most of the actors are non-professional, including of the main character, Julia, played by Julie Ledru. Writer/director Lola Quivoron has been immersed in the urban rodeo world for a while and had realized that all riders were men. She had been looking for some time for her lead, and stumbled onto the Inconnue_du_95 account on Instagram. When she met her, she realized that her life was very much like her character’s, so much that some details of her life ended up in the movie.


In NYC? You can see the film at the beautiful Roxy Cinema on April 15th.
