Ill Fated? Not in the end for B.C. feature

DAY-12-VANCOUVER-FILM-FESTIVAL

Not many films are as appropriately titled as Ill-Fated.

A sort of Greek tragedy set in the midst of a trailer-trash community in the B.C. Interior, it is the story of a long and arduous journey both onscreen and off.

For Vancouver-based first-time feature filmmaker Mark A. Lewis, the rocky road to the festival circuit was marked by the death of a friend, endless financing shortfalls, the B.C. forest fires and a near-miss at Cannes.

But he’s finally made it with his feature about a man named Earl (Peter Outerbridge) who, seeking redemption for his past sins, returns to the community he left as a teenager only to find Jimmy (Paul Campbell), the now-teenage son he abandoned there, desperately trying to escape the ignorance and crushing poverty and get away to college.

The remainder of John McKay’s Canadian Press story is available here.
