Swagger is a candid documentary that introduces the viewer to eleven middle school
students, many of whom are first generation immigrants, living in a Paris banlieue. A class
screening of the film may supplement a French language, social studies or youth awareness
curriculum. Taught in conjunction with this guide, Swagger will encourage students to
think about goals and opportunities, their own views on the world and those of their peers.
Discussion questions and supplementary materials facilitate further research into related
topics such as French identity, racial and cultural segregation, and immigration.
