Two girls grow up as best friends in an 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.

Tender coming of age story in an Innu community. 

— CBC

 

Myriam Verreault's coming-of-age drama, set on an Innu reservation in Quebec, is quietly moving (…) Kuessipan is a beautiful, un-sensationalized look at young womanhood, friendship and community.

Perhaps the strongest debut feature on the Canadian front this year. (…) Key to Kuessipan’s power is a knockout down-to-earth performance by Sharon Fontaine-Ishpatao as Mikuan.

— That Self

 

Of great beauty. 

— Le Soleil

Beautiful and necessary. 

—  Journal de Québec


Full of humanity and incredible force. (…) You need to see this film which contributes to bring people together (…) Kuessipan imposes itself as an impossible to miss piece of work.
