Indican Pictures’ latest film features an entirely Native American/First Nations cast.
Mitzi Bearclaw is a 25-year-old Indigenous woman who loves fashion design. When she receives news that her mother is ill, she moves back to her isolated reservation in southwestern Canada to help her father care for their family. Over the span of one year, she reconnects with her parents, reignites a relationship with an old flame, and faces enemies from her childhood.
The film showcases Mitzi’s story month by month and jumps between her real life and a dream-like place she goes to connect with her spirit guides. To move forward and discover what matters most, Mitzi reconnects with her roots and faces the enemies of her past.
The Incredible 25th Year of Mitzi Bearclaw is a magical film about faith, hope and love that you don’t want to miss.
