Citation sur Divided by Zero [en anglais]

« Questions over her Native identity provokes Ashley's crisis; or perhaps more accurately, her concern over not being Native enough. Ashley lives with her mother and sister in a culturally mixed, middle class Canadian neighborhood. Ashley's earnest activist boyfriend and his affectedly liberal mother are white. Broadly speaking, Ashley's identity crisis is typical of adolescence, something the film [Divided by Zero] presents with humor and dignity. If it is a goal of this work to question some of the assumptions about Native identity, it is an elegant choice to set it in the context of adolescence, itself a time of 'becoming' and of searching for identity. »
