Rosie is a young English-speaking Indigenous orphan who is suddenly forced to live with her French-speaking aunt Fred. Rosie finds herself on the fringes of 1980s Montreal under the care of her aunt, who has just lost her job at a sex shop. On the verge of being evicted, she is not exactly thrilled at the idea of having to look after a child…
Gail Maurice grew up in a Métis village in Saskatchewan, Canada. A filmmaker and actress, she directed the short films Smudge, Kihtwam misawac na-wapamitin, Assini and Rosie, which she adapted into a feature film.
Rosie was also an official selection at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in 2022 and opened at the IMAGE+NATION Festival in Montreal the same year.
