Dance Me Outside DVD
Award winning director Bruce McDonald's earthy first Nations drama has gained a reputation as a powwow for emerging talent like Adam Beach and Jennifer Podemski
Silas Crow (Ryan Black) and Frank Fencepost (Beach) are two average 18 year olds who live on a reservation in Northern Ontario. They hope to get into a Toronto Mechanic's School, but must write a story for their entrance exams first. The whole community is then shocked when one of their friends is killed by a drunken punk at a local hang out. When he gets out of jail they'll plan revenge
The 1995 slice of Native American Life was a landmark ensemble price that opened eyes to like on the modern reserve. Based on a story by W.P. Kinsella the offbeat drama mixes growing pains with crime and old fashioned tribal justice. Dance Me Outside was a breakthrough film when it hit theatres. And was as inspiration for the CBC TV series The Rez also directed by McDonald.
