If you’d like to see the movie Snake River, here’s the event on Facebook for you to attend, or maybe attend.
Not sure what night I’ll see it, but I hope I do get the chance.
It ran about 2 years ago and I couldn’t get the time off of work at the time, but here’s my chance again. I only have a couple of photos from the day I was shooting my scenes. Here’s the slide show if you’d like to have a look.
He’s runnin’ from the past and it’s the end of the trail. That’s the situation that Lac du Bonnet native Milton Bruchanski finds himself in, while starring in the upcoming feature film, Snake River.
Set in 1867, Jacob (Milton) is haunted by the atrocities of the Civil War and loses himself in the wild country known as Snake River. It is there that he stumbles into the life of Mya ( Kimberley Rampersad), a widowed freed slave, who is also trying to make a new life for herself and young son in this harsh and demanding countryside.
Mya reluctantly tends to Jacob’s wounds, as she deals with her own past. As Jacob heals, Mya opens up to him and they find that their pasts are intertwined. Together they find peace, if only for a short time.
As Snake River is at the end of the trail, their haunting memories do catch up with them and change their lives forever.
Snake River is a made-in-Manitoba project with an all-Manitoba cast and crew and was filmed in and around Bird’s Hill Park, Old Pinawa Dam, the Manitoba Museum, and Fort Gibraltar.
