April 30: The Lesser Blessed
Runtime: 86 min
“A drama centered on a First Nations teenager trying to find his place in the modern world.” (IMDB.com)
“A teenager living in a small, remote community in Canada deals with life as a high school student. Larry's (Joel Nathan Evans) life is full of too many parties, too much drinking, and not enough responsibility or independence.The film explores several typical teen issues, such as alienation and the search for one's own identity, but in this case from the perspective of a Tlicho Indian who struggles between his Native ancestry and finding his place in to the modern world.” (Wikipedia.com)
