Fête de la musique

To celebrate La Fête de la musique (World Music Day - 21 June) the French Embassy and the Alliance Française Network in Ireland are delighted to present the Irish premiere of Rookies (Allons enfants), a French Hip-Hop dance battle documentary. Ahead of the Paris 2024 games, this screening also aims to promote the values of sport and encourage young people to be active and unleash their creativity through music and dance.
Discover an energizing story exploring the lives of teens and their journey towards resilience through dance and music.
Through Hip Hop, the directors portray a generation of young French people by entering the halls and classrooms of a Parisian high school. Revolving around themes of inclusion and diversity, this film is a testament to the power of embracing raw talent and turning it into potential.


In the heart of Paris, a prestigious secondary school takes an audacious bet: to integrate students from working-class districts and to make them break the circle of school failure through Hip Hop dance. Rookies tells their story.
