Synopsis


This film tells the story of a dapper young remittance man who is sent from England to Alberta to attempt ranching in 1909. However, his affection for badminton, bird watching and liquor leaves him little time for wrangling cattle. It soon becomes clear that nothing in his refined upbringing has prepared him for the harsh conditions of the New World. A film about the beauty of the prairie, the pangs of homesickness and the folly of living dangerously out of context.

Amanda Forbis, Wendy Tilby


Both originally from Alberta, Amanda Forbis and Wendy Tilby first met in Vancouver at the Emily Carr College of Art and Design, where they studied film and animation. In 1999 they co-directed When the Day Breaks, which received over thirty international awards, including the Palme d’Or in Cannes, Grand Prix at Annecy, Zagreb and Hiroshima, and an Academy Award®nomination. They have continued to collaborate on workshops, commercials and commissioned projects. In 2003, they relocated from Montreal to Calgary, where they made Wild Life.
