Distinguished Pallister speaker and Film Director Genevieve Dulade-De Celles will present her film and participate in a Q&A with campus and community members; a reception will follow the event.

“Une colonie” follows a timid 12-year-old girl who is about to leave her native countryside to begin high school. She becomes lost in the hostile environment, but along the way, she encounters a young, indigenous outsider who helps her embrace herself.
