A Colony

4:00 PM 19th October 2019 Queen's Film Theatre

Camille wanders through the countryside talking with frogs and chickens: she sails through life as a carefree soul. But for her older sister, the introverted Mylia, things are more complicated.

Mylia is lost between the uncertainty in her family life, the superficial atmosphere at her new school and her first experiences of house parties. It is Camille who eventually introduces Mylia to Jimmy. The boy from the nearby Abenaki reserve is different and he encourages her to break free. Without passing judgement, and with a fine sense for the subtleties of social relations, the film follows these young teenagers in their search for a place where they can just be themselves.
