Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
In Vancouver, I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.
A movie screening at this year’s Vancouver International Film Festival is Two Indians Talking. It’s a comedic drama that gives us a view on to reserve life as two First Nations men talk through life, culture, politics, women, literature, and more. The two people talking are Adam, played by Justin Rain, who’s appeared in one of the Twilight films, and Nathan, played by Nathanial Arcand, who’s appeared on North of 60 and Heartland. The dialogue is often sharp, humorous and thoughtful. The screenwriter is Andrew Genaille. Joining me now is the director of the film, Sara McIntyre. This is her first feature as a director, after successful careers as an actress, singer and casting director, producer and more. She is a past president of Women in Film and Television Vancouver. The movie, Two Indians Talking screens at the film fest this Wednesday, the 6th of October at 9.15pm, and Thursday the 8th 12.40pm in the afternoon.
