<Mohawk Girls premieres Sunday Nov. 23> (November 21, 2014 - Toronto, ON) Anyone who pays attention to Canadian news will be familiar with the word Kahnawake. No matter what side of Canadian justice you come down on, chances are good you wouldn't associate the name of the Mohawk Territory on the south shore of the St. Lawrenbce River near Montreal with comedy. Yet, that's exactly what Mohawk Girls is. Created and directed by award-winning Tracey Deer, Mohawk Girls is the first TV comedy series ever made in Kahnawake.Arrow

For the past few weeks all the signs have been pointing to this one, terrific, annual event. Snow has fallen somewhere if not everywhere in the country, the Santa Claus Parade in Toronto has happened, you can't get near a shopping mall parking lot and it seems as if every street in every city is festooned in cool holiday stuff. But more important than all that... it's the run-up to the annual Royal Canadian Air Farce New Year's Eve Show. And you might get to see it live.Arrow

Andrea Dorfman's new film, Heartbeat opens in Toronto tomorrow. Justine, played by Tanya Davis, is paralyzed by stage fright.
