Divertimento | NZ French Film Festival June 2024 | In NZ cinemas July 18

Dir. Marie-Castille Mention-Schaar | 2022 | France | 114 mins| Rated PG

Based on the true story of one of the world’s leading renowned female conductors, Zahia Ziouani.

DIVERTIMENTO is the orchestra created by 17 year old Algerian, Zahia Ziouani, unique in it’s diversity and composition, integrated into the elite world of Parisian classical music.

Classical symphonic music is everything for Zahia and her twin sister, Fettouma. Nevertheless, living in underprivileged Parisian suburbs in 1995 with their Algerian background, they struggle arduously to approach their dreams – becoming an orchestra conductor and a cellist.
Driven by determination, passion, and courage, they create their own orchestra, Divertimento.
It will be a game-changer.
