Award-winning filmmaker Shelley Niro offers a contemporary comedy-drama about an ambitious Native American woman.
Coming soon: The Incredible 25th Year of Mitzi Bearclaw, a contemporary comedy-drama directed and co-written by Shelley Niro, about a Native American woman forced to delay her ambitious plans for her future while she returns to her roots.
According to the press notes: “Mitzi Bearclaw (Morningstar Angeline), a 25-year-old indigenous woman living in downtown Toronto, dreams of designing beautiful hats that can change the world. But when she receives a letter from her father informing her that her mother is ill, Mitzi decides to put her plans on hold and move back to her isolated reserve in southwestern Canada to look after her family. While there, she faces old enemies and unresolved relationships, including a mother who was never supportive and an old rivalry with someone from her childhood. To move forward, Mitzi must confront her small-town drama and discover what truly matters most.”
The Incredible 25th Year of Mitzi Bearclaw will open Friday, Jan. 12, at the Arena Cinelounge Drive-In in Los Angeles, and will kick off its digital and home video release March 23.
