In this affecting tale, Mylia, is a 12 year old girl in Centre-du-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 outsiders learn to navigate the precariousness of their environments, confronting concepts of citizenship and belonging. Beautifully shot and tenderly observed, Une Colonie is a remarkable coming of age tale that explores themes of loneliness and connection through its moving story.
