We consider the evolution by mean curvature in a highly heterogeneous medium, modeled by a periodic forcing term, with large $L^\infty$-norm but with zero average. We prove existence of a homogenization limit, when the dimension of the periodicity cell tends to zero, and show some properties of the effective velocity.
