Local area filmmaker Floyd Favel is finally ready to start filming an indigenous film that has been in the works for a number of years.
The project is Sweet Cherry Wine, and according to a news release issued this week, filming will take place on the Poundmaker First Nation from July 12 until July 17.
The story, written by Favel, is set in the 1950s, as recounted in the present day by an elderly Cree woman as she spends her final days in hospital.
“The story speaks of the racism that traumatized indigenous people of this province for decades, but also speaks to the beauty and the eloquence of Cree culture as it struggled during a dark time in Canadian history,” the news release states.
