About the Film (French)

Saint-Boniface, le quartier francophone de Winnipeg où tout le monde se connait, les rumeurs circulent librement, les jeunes ne trouvent pas leur place et le français se mélange à l’anglais. Natasha et Charlotte ont de grands rêves. C’est décidé. Demain, elles quitteront leur petite commununauté francophone de l’Ouest canadien pour la grande métropole de Montréal. C’est une séparation qui est difficile à vivre pour Alexis, leur meilleur ami. Ce soir, le trio fait la fête une dernière fois dans leur quartier. FM Youth présente un franc regard sur la jeunesse francophone de l’Ouest canadien.

FM Youth a été nominé pour un prix du Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois (Meilleur film franco-canadien – 2015), un Windy Award (Stéphane Oystryk – Réalisateur: Premier long métrage – 2016), un Western Canadian Music Award (Graham Epp – Composeur pour médias visuels de l’année – 2016) et un Prix du livre du Manitoba (Prix littéraire Rue-Deschambault pour la fiction francophone – 2016) pour le ciné-roman qui est paru aux Éditions du Blé.

About the Film (English)

Saint-Boniface, the French Quarter of Winnipeg, where everyone knows each other, the rumour mills work overtime, young people can’t figure out where they belong and French mixes with English. Natasha and Charlotte have big dreams. They’ve already decided. Tomorrow, they’re leaving their little Western Canadian francophone community for the great metropolis of Montreal. It’s a tough pill to swallow for their best friend Alexis. Tonight, the trio parties one last time in their neighbourhood. FM Youth is a look at being young and French in Western Canada.
