Steve Simpson is the Scottish filmmaker behind the most successful non-Hollywood Native American themed film in US cinemas in years,
Neither Wolf Nor Dog
based on a best-selling novel. The movie will be at the Phoenix Cinema in Kirkwall on the 28th of May at 13:00 & 19:00.
The trailer: https://vimeo.com/333952379.
Beyond just being popular with general audiences, this powerful and moving film has been favoured by art groups, faith groups, libraries, schools, and other cultural organizations, as well as being immensely well-received by older audiences. The film's audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes is 4.7/5 95%, which is higher than any of the Hollywood films out at the moment.
The film stars elder Dave Bald Eagle, who passed away after filming at age 97. His incredible performance alone gives the film a great cultural weight. During the film's climax, his character, Dan, takes us into the heart of Wounded Knee, where that last infamous massacre of Native Americans took place in 1890. Dave's family connection to the massacre was even deeper than that of the character he played. Although the film is fiction, the script was thrown away at this point of the filming, and Dave delivered the most moving of improvised scenes. At the end of filming this scene, he said he had been holding those words in for 95 years.
