Rather than wait for Prime Minister Stephen Harper to call an inquiry into Canada’s 1,200 missing and murdered aboriginal women, Kawennáhere Devery Jacobs decided to make a movie.
The Mohawk actress portrayed an aboriginal teen fighting the powers that be in Jeff Barnaby’s reservation revenge epic Rhymes for Young Ghouls, and had a recurring role on last fall’s APTN comedy Mohawk Girls.
She spent 2014 in New York City pursuing her acting career. Returning home in December, the Kahnawake native decided to step behind the camera for a cause that is close to her heart. Her coming short fiction film Stolen recounts the last 24 hours in the life of a 14-year-old aboriginal girl who runs away from a group home.
As of Thursday afternoon, Jacob’s had raised nearly $7,000 of the $15,000 needed by March 29 to make the movie via a campaign on crowdfunding site Kickstarter.
