Festival starts in


Whether amateurs or elite athletes, cheerladers are always hypersexualized in pop culture. Playing with imaginary of these sport’s symbol and their iconic pompom, "Cheer" sheds light on feminine clichés, taboo and paradoxes and brings us within a oniric universe where sisterhood acts as a source of empowerment.
