As part of the fifth Night of Ideas in Ireland, the Cork International Film Festival, in partnership with the Embassy of France in Ireland, is delighted to present the Irish Premiere of Emilie Carpentier's debut feature, 'The Horizon'.

On the northern outskirts of Paris, where housing projects rise out of fields, Adja, 18, burns with the desire to live intensely. While her brother breaks out as a pro soccer player, her best friend blows up as an influencer on social media, and her mother struggles to save her hometown in Senegal, Adja has only a blurred vision of her future. With Arthur, who becomes more than a friend, her political and environmental awareness rises, and Adja joins the fight of her generation.
