REZ BOMB, PINE RIDGE TOUR DAY 15

    Hi Steve, I am just curious why you chose Tamara Feldman…is she native american or Jewish or what? Wouldn’t it have been best to use a real native american actress? Especially since you have the idea you want to help bring money to the area.

    Hi Elizabeth

    Thanks for the message. You know a lot of people make assumptions on Tamara’s heritage based on her surname though she is not Jewish. Indeed on Pine Ridge there are a lot of people you’d assume were French because of their surnames. I don’t want to give away too much about the narrative of the film as it might ruin it for people but Tamara fit the role pretty well heritage wise though she did not grow up in Pine Ridge. Truth be told she was the only actress I could find that had the acting/star power that fit the role and she did an amazing job.

    But there has never been a movie set on Pine Ridge where every actor playing an Oglala other than Tamara was Oglala from Pine Ridge. Skins for example drew its experienced cast from all over including Canada. Casting generally is about finding the best actor and casting a wide net. My net was smaller as it was other than the leads almost entirely locals.

    Thanks for the interest.
