ANGELIQUE’S ISLE – Feature Film
Written by Michelle Derosier of Thunderstone Pictures and co-directed by Derosier and Marie-Helene Cousineau. This is a story of strength and survival. The movie is based on the true story of Angelique Mott, a 17-year-old Indigenous woman, who was abandoned along with her husband on Isle Royale, on Lake Superior, during the copper rush of 1845.
“I think as our voices, as Indigenous women … grew louder, whether it was through things like Idle No More several years back, or the strong voices that have been speaking up around the issue of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women, that … it kept driving me.”
The film was shot in northwestern Ontario, with scenes set at Fort William Historical Park and the Cascades Conservation Area in Thunder Bay, as well as along the shores of Lake Superior in Terrace Bay, Ont.
