A coming-of-age tale set in an Innu village in Québec. As life choices throw friendship into disarray,love for one another is sorely threatened…
‘On top of the film’s electric storytelling, Fontaine-Ishpatao and Grégoire’s performances are raw and unflinching, and manage to adhere you to them in such a powerful way that at times it feels like you’re infringing on their privacy. It’s rare to feel as connected to film characters as you will to Mikuan and Shaniss, and it’s rarer still to feel so attached that you’re sad to leave them. “Kuessipan” is quiet and mesmerizing and tragic and full of hope. It is a triumph, and a privilege to spend time with.’—Anne T. Donahue, Globe and Mail
