Followed by a Q & A with director Stéphane Oystryk
FM YOUTH by Stéphane Oystryk.
Release date: 2014
Running time: 90min
Saint-Boniface, the French Quarter of Winnipeg, where everyone knows each other, the rumor mills work overtime, young people can’t figure out where they belong and French mixes with English. Natasha and Charlotte have big dreams. 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 neighborhood. FM Youth is a look at being young and French in Western Canada.
Stéphane Oystryk is a filmmaker and writer from St-Boniface. He completed his first feature film FM Youth in 2014 which depicts young Franco-manitobans embracing their culture and language in the heart of Winnipeg’s French neighbourhood.
