Synopsis
It’s the end of summer in the countryside. Mylia, 12, begins high school. She will have less time to devote to her younger sister Camille and to look after her parents who argue constantly. In this hostile and unknown place, she will have to find out where she belongs. Her cousin introduced her to Jacinthe, an older, more experienced girl with a network of friends. Maybe by looking like the others and joining the ranks, everything will be easier. Her route also Crosses Jimmy, a native classmate who is often in her corner.

REVIEW

“A Colony also showcases an emotional sensitivity and cultural specificity that gives it a strong individual identity. This familiar dance is handled with a quiet dignity by both writer/director DeCelles and her accomplished young star Emilie Bierre”  – Screen Daily

“Sans réinventer le genre du film portant sur l’adolescence, Une colonie se démarque grâce au portrait tout en finesse qu’on y propose.” –La Presse
