In a small Canadian town in the country, a shy girl on the verge of puberty gets a first taste of the discriminatory and deep-seated prejudice of the adult world that awaits her. An emerging director offers up an excellent coming-of-age film dealing with social issues and justly wins the Crystal Bear award at the Berlin Film Festival.


CANADA | 2018 | COLOR | DCP | 102' | FRENCH

Teenage Mylia grows up in Quebec with her divorcing parents and her younger sister. Free from the restrictions of a particular plot and wonderfully internal as to the description of the absolute sensitivity of a girl’s soul that is shaped in fear and the need of belonging, ‘A Colony’ is a subtle film about growing up.

The camera is set on the heroine’s height (young Émilie Bierre is amazing and hopefully we’ll come across her again) Geneviève Dulude-De Celles work also shows subtly the family crisis, the alienation of a scared teenager at school, the heartbeat and the post-colonial sense of native. In the end, what makes the film stand out is the acquired sense of defining your space. Crystal Bear at Berlin. I.D.
