Mohawk Girls

Directed by Tracey Deer
Canada, 2005


Set on the Kahnawake reserve, Deer follows three teen girls on the cusp of adulthood. While many of their struggles are familiar ones, the trio also carry the weight of a question imposed upon them by colonialism: Should they cross the Mercier Bridge for opportunities in the “outside world”.
