📽️ MOHAWK GIRLS by Tracey Deer ( 2005 | 1 h 2 min )
With insight, humour and compassion, Mohawk Girls director Tracey Deer takes us inside the lives of three teenagers as they tackle the same issues of identity, culture and family she faced a decade earlier. Like her, they are outspoken, honest and wise beyond their years. Deeply emotional yet unsentimental, Mohawk Girls reveals the hope, despair, heartache and promise of growing up Indigenous at the beginning of the 21st century.
