Rustic Oracle is a powerful, urgent look at the impact of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls through the prism of one small tight-knit family. It’s sad that mothers must address this with their young daughters and help them protect themselves
Set in the late 90s, Rustic Oracle is a Canadian dramatic feature about Ivy, an 8-year-old girl trying to understand what happened to her big sister who has vanished from their small Mohawk community. With minimal clues, Ivy and her mother Susan embark on an unwelcome journey to find Heather which ultimately brings the pair closer together despite challenging circumstances. Behind the story of desperation, told through the eyes of a child, lies one of hope, growth, awakening and love.
Written and Directed by Sonia Bonspille Boileau. Sonia is an Indigenous writer and director who was raised between Oka, where her French-Canadian father hails from, and Kanesatake, the community of her Mohawk mother.
Expect moments of brief violence, strong language.
