Lola Quivoron’s exhilarating debut feature is set in the motocross culture of the Paris suburbs, where a fearless female rider shakes up the boys’ club.

Hot-tempered and fiercely independent Julia (Julie Ledru) finds escape in a passion for motorcycles and the high-octane world of urban ‘Rodeos’ – illicit gatherings where riders show off their bikes and their latest daring stunts. After a chance meeting at a Rodeo, Julia finds herself drawn into a clandestine and volatile clique. Striving to prove herself to the ultra-masculine group, she is faced with a series of escalating demands that will make or break her place in the community.

Having premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival, Rodeo is a heart-pounding drama that features incredible stunts and an emotional storyline that stays with you like a burned tyre mark.
