‘The Legend of Sarila’ is everything an animated should not be

La légende de Sarila (English title: The Legend of Sarila)

Written by Pierre Tremblay and Roger Harvey

Directed by Nancy Florence Savard

Canada, 2013

For all the diversity and vibrancy one can easily find in Canadian culture, from ‘coast to coast to coast’ as the uniquely Canadian saying goes, the stories of the First Nations are the least shared in film, theater, television and music. Whether the brunt of the responsibility for this equally diverse culture’s lack of presence in traditional media lie with collective disinterest, some unwritten and unspoken stigma or even both, the fact remains that their history and stories remain mostly a mystery to the populace at large.

Denette Wilford: CBC Goes Big And Hits Home
The demise of the CBC has always been a source of amusement. Hardy har har. This year, however, the Canadian broadcaster is in on the joke. Sure, it may have cancelled ratings hit Battle of the Blades -- along with Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!, but it clearly had no choice. Blades was too expensive to produce, while the rights to the game shows were equally costly.

During last week's upfront presentation, Kirstine Stewart, executive vice-president of English services, said the CBC was "moving forward" -- and she wasn't kidding. The broadcaster will continue to do what it's always done -- support 100 per cent Canadian content while entertaining its loyal fans; just in a less extravagant way (unlike this year's season preview, which was the biggest I've ever seen from the network).

Arctic Air star Pascale Hutton loved the spectacle. "It's this idea that we really need to promote our shows and promote our talent,

'Cashing In' welcomes four new stars
Toronto -- Tina Keeper ("North of 60"), Don Burnstick, Jennifer Baxter and Blues musician Derek Miller have joined the second season cast of the Canadian TV soap "Cashing In" from Animiki See Digital Productions and Buffalo Gal Pictures.

They join a returning cast for the Aptn half-hour dramedy about a fictional First Nations-run gambling palace in Manitoba that includes Eric Schweig, Wesley French, Karen Holness, Glen Gould and Sarah Podemski.

The comic series has found cult status by portraying aboriginal Canadians as sexy and wealthy in a modern casino setting, rather than telling traditional stories in Canada's Great White North.

Vanessa Loewen and Jean du Toit are producing "Cashing In," with Peter Strutt and Phyllis Laing executive producing.
