“My name is Lila and I am a proud Blackfoot woman. What I am doing is illegal.”

Deer Woman tells the story of a young, missing and murdered girl in a country where over 1,600 Indigenous women and girls are officially recognised as being missing or murdered.

Lila, one missing girl’s big sister, refuses to stand idly by. She is the daughter of a hunter who taught her all he knew. She’s ex-army, too. When circumstances converge, Lila finds the perfect opportunity to investigate her baby sister’s murder.

Deer Woman premiered at Tawata Productions’ Kia Mau festival in Wellington, Aotearoa (NZ) in June of 2018 and was hailed as a highlight of the 2019 Sydney Festival, playing at Carriageworks to sold-out houses.
