 Une Colonie (102 mins) Recommended age 15+
In association with IFI Education https://ifi.ie/learn/ 
This year’s French language film choice is a Francophone region story from Canada.

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 remarkable coming of age tale that explores themes of loneliness and connection through its moving story.

Suitable for TY, 5th & 6th year students.

Ferris Beuller’s Day Off: Classic 80s (103 mins) 12A

 

Ferris Bueller has an uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it. Intending to make one last duck-out before graduation, Ferris calls in sick, “borrows” a Ferrari, and embarks on a one-day journey through the streets of Chicago. On Ferris’ trail is high school principal Rooney, determined to catch him in the act. It was one of the top grossing films of 1985. In 2014, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, being deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.
