Trivia

Interesting to learn that Dan the Elder in the film played by Dave Bald Eagle has his Belgian wife, Josie, playing in the film as the Museum shop woman. Such a juxtaposition to their roles in the film to be married! Apparently they were short of an actress, and Steve heard she once was one. There is a lot behind the making of this film which is fascinating. We learnt quite a bit of it at the Q&A session at the premier in Edinburgh. See more »

Once In A Lifetime
19 July 2016 | by garytheantencoSee all my reviews

Finally! The film is alive! After having waited in unsettled anticipation, "Neither Wolf nor Dog" is complete and the wait was far beyond worth it.

From the moment we originally viewed the prospective trailer, we knew this project was special; after having discovered the Kickstarter campaign we knew we had to contribute what we could. We were being spoken to, from where we're not sure. Now, we've had the benefit of a special screening of the finished movie. It's not possible to find the words to express the impact on both our minds and Spirits, on our Beings! The story begins slowly, almost plodding, yet gradually intensifies to a magnificent crescendo produced by Dave Bald Eagle's powerful and penetrating soliloquy so surprising in its intensity that it literally sweeps over you. It is at precisely that point that the full meaning of it all crashes down creating the intense emotions that only facing such truth can produce.

The story behind "Neither Wolf nor Dog" was expertly interpreted by all of the cast, the cinematography skillfully executed, the scenes and setting masterfully selected, the editing beyond professional. In short it is one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences and we've been so blessed to have had a small part in its creation.

Please see it when it comes to a theater near you. It's a story that needs telling by people who deserve the recognition.
