Film that explores themes of missing Indigenous women to debut across Canada on streaming services

"Rustic Oracle is much more than a story about loss. It is the story of a mother and daughter coming together and learning how to love and care for each other under painful circumstances"

 

Award-winning Mohawk filmmaker Sonia Bonspille Boileau is premiering her latest film Rustic Oracle  November 17 to streaming services like Apple TV, Bell and Vimeo.

Rustic Oracle illustrates the story of a missing Indigenous girl through the eyes of her younger sister, Ivy. 

The story unfolds as young Ivy accompanies her mother Susan, played by Carmen Moore, on a road trip with the hopes of finding her older sister who suddenly disappeared from their First Nation community.

So far, the film has won 26 awards at national and international film festivals, including two Leo Awards for Best Film and Best Lead Performance.

It also features a predominantly Indigenous cast and crew – including writer/director, producer and production team.
