CFUV @ VFF: Le Dep
Written by programdirector on 02/09/2016
Le Dep is a story of an indigenous woman put into an impossible position by her family, who must rise through unrealistic expectations in order to survive danger very close to home. Such familiar themes could be subject to trite or possibly naÃ¯ve storytelling, but the performances of the two lead actors, Eve Ringuette and Charles Buckell, as well as well scripted plot twists, keep the narrative boiling towards its climatic end. This is the first feature film for Mohawk filmmaker Sonia Bonspille Boileau who shows much promise of greater work to come after such a bold and compelling debut.
