I’m up for a gold in best screenplay this weekend.
Here is the logline: Sometimes a man has to go to war with an enemy to find a true friend.
MOON OF POPPING TREES/TRUE STORY
An old Cheyenne Dog Soldier, Star In The Sky, brings young Indians to the ranch of old Tom Catty to run a last buffalo in 1920 Colorado. Star is afraid that the young Cheyenne have lost the old ways, and they have. The buffaloes are the ranch pets of Tom’s wife, Emma, including an old bull named King Arthur. They wreck the ranch in the last running. Through flashback, we experience the comic and tragic friendship of the two old men during the brutal settlement of the Old West and the near destruction of the Cheyenne at the Sand Creek Massacre. A powerful and lyrical statement in all that we have lost from our past.
I could use some prayers to the Great Spirit and some good harmony wishes. I already have a silver and bronze but I want a gold in my home town of Trindiefest. . .competition is extensive and very competitive. I see some of these writers in other contests. . .
Get your tickets soon!! Trindiefest goes into full force with films at TSJC on Saturday. . .
