McLean Boys
Feature Film

The renegade Metis sons of a brutal white fur trader try to start a race war in 1870s British Columbia, fifteen years after their father was killed fighting the Chilcotin War.

There were four of them - three brothers and their best friend. The oldest was 24, the youngest 14. It was the ‘wild west’ of 1879. Bored, angry and alienated by a society that had no place for them, they began to lash back. It was minor stuff at first, but slowly events spun right out of control, until a police constable and another man lay dead. Now they were murderers on the run. But for a few giddy days, they convinced themselves they were revolutionaries, freedom fighters for the dispossessed. They began to build an army, only to watch it fall apart. Deserted by their last allies, they were pinned down in a remote cabin by 100 men with guns. After a three-day siege, they surrendered and were committed for trial. After a perfunctory trial they were condemned to death and duly changed.

TALES OF AN URBAN INDIAN
Feature Film

Tales of an Urban Indian is adapted from the hit one-man show by Darrell Dennis which has been performed across Canada and the United State to rave reviews. It follows the trials and tribulations of a young Native American man, Simon Douglas, from his home on the reservation to the mean streets of Vancouver’s downtown east side and finally to self-respect.

Simon has identity issues. Deserted by his father and raised by his mother and feisty grandmother, Simon attempts to navigate the issues of Native American racism, sexuality, poverty, and class. As Simon states, “It’s a story I need to tell, not because it’s extraordinary but because it’s common, too common and it’s not told enough.” Tales delves into the serious issues of modern day Native identity but does so in a way that is fast paced, original, and most important - hilarious!
