Clancy Dennehy: Rez Cars

Catch the short film on the filmmaker Clancy Dennehy's website:
"Voiced by top native actors including Tantoo Cardinal and Gary Farmer, crucial moments of past lives breathe again inside abandoned cars resting in reservation country. As in much native storytelling, humor mixes easily with sex, death, moosemeat and 8-tracks. These Rez Cars are all rare examples of past eras’ indulgences in automotive color and design, lovingly photographed as they were found in the cinematic landscapes of British Columbia, ranging from the majestic Fraser Canyon to the dystopian Deadman Valley, all loaded with haunting atmospheres. By turns shocking, sexy and spiritual, REZ CARZ is a collection of ghost stories that reveres our inseparable relationship with our cars."
Many thanks to Sharon Riis for the heads-up.
