2019 | Dir Dir Myriam Verreault | 117mins | Canada
A deeply-felt drama in which issues of race and class threaten the lifelong best-friendship of two girls growing up in a Quebec Innu community. While Mikuan has a loving family, Shaniss is picking up the pieces of her shattered childhood. As children, they promised each other to stick together no matter what. But as they’re about to turn 17, their friendship is shaken when Mikuan falls for a white boy, and starts dreaming of leaving the reserve that’s now too small for her dreams. English/French with English subtitles.
“The film discusses the unbreakable bond of sisterhood, sure, but it’s also a joyous celebration of culture with heartbreaking reality in between.” – Sara Clements , Exclaim!
