About the Film

Directors: India Desjardins, Christian Laurence
Actors: Marianne Verville, Genevieve Chartrand, Aliocha Schneider

Aurélie Laflamme feels alone in the world, especially since her father's death five years ago. What if her father had been an alien who left Earth to return to his own planet? In that case, Aurélie would be an alien too. That would explain many things such as why she feels different from others, especially her mother, why she can't string two words together without making a mistake, and why boys really get on her nerves. Through the pages of her diary, Aurélie confides her joys and sorrows, successes and failures, love and friendships, and tries to find her place.

Praise

The movie won the Grand Prize Feature at the New York International Children's Film Festival in 2010.

Celebrating le Mois de la francophonie

La Francophonie is the vibrant community shared by the 274 million speakers of French across 5 continents. From Africa to the Americas, French is the 5th most spoken language in the world, and the second most learned language after English. With more than 60,000 words, it is a language of international communication used by 80 nations and governments. In the United States, it is estimated that up to 11 million people are Francophone, and 13 million Americans claim French, French-Canadian, or Acadian origin. The majority of Franco-Americans are concentrated in New England, as well as Louisiana. Clearly, French is a rich international language that connects people well beyond the borders of France!
