The debut feature film Rodeo, by the French director and screenwriter Lola Quivoron, is set in the motorcycle subculture of the Paris suburbs, where a fearless female motorcyclist manages to shake up an all-male motorcycle club. Julia is young and a misfit, with her greatest passion being motorcycle riding. The film begins with a sequence in which Julia defiantly confronts a group of young men from the neighborhood trying to deter her from following her path. Nevertheless, even though the world of stunt-performing motorcyclists is a predominantly male club, Julia persists and attends illegal motorcycle gatherings, known as “rodeos”. She embarks on infiltrating their predominantly male world, but an accident raises questions about her ability to fit in.


Lola Quivoron was born in 1989 in Paris and is a French director and writer. After obtaining her degree, she completed a preparatory school, studied modern literature and obtained a Masters in Cinema in Paris. In 2012, she entered the Film Directing Department at La fémis. After two narrative short films and a short documentary directed within the school, Son Of The Wolf (2015) is her fourth film. Her short film Dreaming of Baltimore (Au loin, Baltimore) (2016) was screened at various festivals including FF Locarno. Lastly, Lola spent years getting to know the underground community of motorcyclists riding north of Paris, and her latest film reflects an empathetic understanding of such a milieu and its protagonists.
