IFI Education: Senior French - A Colony

IFI Education: Senior French - A Colony

Thursday 19 March, 10:30am  |  Solstice Cinema  |  Tickets: €5 (Teachers free)

This year’s French language film choice is an affecting tale from the Francophone region of Canada. Mylia is a 12-year-old girl in Centredu- Québec, struggling to fit in at a new school. Finding solace in the outdoors with fellow outsider Jimmy, a boy of Abenaki descent, the two learn to navigate the precariousness of their environments, confronting concepts of citizenship and belonging. Beautifully shot and tenderly observed, A Colony is a remarkable coming-of- age tale that explores themes of loneliness and connection through its moving story.

Canada • 2018 • Drama • English subtitles 102 mins • Director: Geneviève Dulude-De Celles
