J'aime les filles (I Like Girls)

Diane Obomsawin

J'aime les filles ( Diane Obomsawin)


First love is an intoxicating experience, but with it can come excruciating awkwardness, unrequited emotions and confusing issues of identity.


Diane Obomsawin (1959) began her career as a graphic artist by writing comic books, illustrating and painting. Since 1992 she has also made several animated films, including The Worm (2000), The Coat (2000), Elbow Room (2002) and Here and There (2007). J’aime les filles is based on her 2014 comic book of the same name.
