| Slightly whimsical
I saw this last month at the 2010 Palm Springs Festival of Native Film & Culture. This is kind of simple and silly. In this fantasy/comedy three women, one lonely (Onkiyohstha), one childless (Teyotsihstokwáthe Dakota) and one poor (Tewentahawiht Dawn Antone) come to the mystical but hard of hearing Gardner (Owennatekha) as he's tending his garden to seek his help in attaining what they lack. Zoe Leigh Hopkins directs and co-wrote this short with Owennatekha. Filmed in Ottawa, Canada in Mohawk and Heiltsuk language with English subtitles. Owennatekha is fairly good in his role but the three women are amateurish. Hopkins' husband musician Marty Ballentyne provides a nice music score which is probably the best thing about the whole flick. Looks low budget but is slightly whimsical. I would give this a 5.5 out of 10.
