“The Girls of St. Mary’s” is a rare glimpse into the lives of three Maliseet teenagers on St. Mary’s First Nation, in Fredericton, New Brunswick. St. Mary’s is one of the few urban reserves in Canada and it’s economically strong, But, even here, racism and intolerance take their toll. This one-hour documentary follows a 14, 16 an 17 year-old over a six-month period, as they struggle with inter-racial dating, complicated family relationships and the reality of growing up as aboriginal females in Canada. Alongside the trials, there are triumphs.
