Native Boy - get a box of tissues folks!


Native Boy: The Film from Native Boy on Vimeo.

Last year Tim and I were asked if we would be judges for the first Speechless Film Festival at Bethany. This meant watching an awful lot of movies, both short, full length, good and not so good. Without a doubt, the film above, Native Boy by Henry Roosevelt, was our favorite. There will be no "spoilers for The Grey" here. It is a beautiful film and the story telling is exquisite, but I am serious about the need for tissues. By the end of it I was sobbing uncontrollably. It's not a bad sobbing jag (if that makes sense) so don't let that stop you from watching it. Before I sign off - some of this was shot in Minnesota, so you may recognize the scenery. Enjoy!
