ANOTHER PINE RIDGE INDIAN RESERVATION MOVIE?

I’ve noticed a few blogs online in support of Rez Bomb but commenting about how everything seems to get set on Pine Ridge and wishing that more was set in American Indian communities elsewhere.

I wholeheartedly agree and am developing some projects that would do that. My reasons for shooting Rez Bomb are a bit more simple than that. Firstly it is a truly universal story. It was originally written for Edinburgh in Scotland where we actually shot the opening 9 minutes as a promo there years ago. But when I decided to relocate it Pine Ridge seemed the obvious place to me in part because it was in my comfort zone as I’d been to Pine Ridge a few times and had friends there so it wasn’t a step into the unknown.

Visually it is an extraordinary place that I wanted to shoot and also though my budget was small I wanted to spend it in the poorest community where it would do the most good. So Pine Ridge worked for that. Yes Pine Ridge grabs a lot of the limelight but I am sure most people would rather not have that limelight and not have to deal with the severity of the recent history that earned it as well as deal with the ongoing poverty (that exists elsewhere also but on Pine Ridge its like a perfect storm).

Hopefully if we can all build a strong enough grass roots campaign (and you can all help get the word out) for Rez Bomb where it can be successful then we can get back out there and shoot more work in Indian Country.
