MOHAWK
2017, MPI Media, 91 min, Dir: Ted Geoghegan

With a carefully crafted, historically informed milieu populated with true monsters and complex heroes, this tragic, tense and timely survival thriller won’t soon be forgotten. Set during the latter half of the War of 1812, MOHAWK follows Oak (Kaniehtiio Horn) and Calvin Two Rivers (Justin Rain), along with their British lover Joshua (Eamon Farren), as they’re relentlessly pursued by vengeful American soldiers through the dense forests of upstate New York. Caught in the crossfire between the British Empire and America, the powerful Mohawk nation stands neutral - until an impulsive attack on an American encampment by Calvin Two Rivers emboldens its racist leader, Hezekiah Holt, to destroy all Mohawks in his path.
