Une colonie -- Film Description:
"At 12, Mylia leaves her comfort zone and moves to a big school, where she discovers a new world with new rules, cliques and rites of passage. When she meets Jimmy, an Indigenous boy from the nearby reservation, the shy girl opens herself to new knowledge and emotions. After the fine documentary Bienvenue à F.L. – also set in a remote high school – Geneviève Dulude-De Celles continues her cinematic exploration of adolescence. With a deft touch, she looks at everything from familial affection to the postcolonial imagination. Her subtle approach puts vulnerability front and centre, thanks to a talented cast with a flair for naturalism."
