Sonia is a bilingual Mohawk filmmaker who has been working for the past decade at bringing Indigenous content to the screen for viewers of all cultural backgrounds. In 2015 Sonia wrote and directed her first feature film Le Dep, which made the official selection of several prestigious festivals around the world. She also made a feature documentary about the impacts of the 1990 Oka Crisis called The Oka Legacy, which earned her a Golden Sheaf award at the 2016 Yorkton Film Festival. Beyond film and television Sonia is still very much involved in community-based and corporate productions that focus on the wellbeing of Indigenous peoples in Canada. Sonia is also the 2016 recipient of the APTN Award of Distinction given during the Montreal’s First Peoples Festival and is currently in production of her second dramatic feature film.
