In Production: The Jingle Dress
A new Minnesota film, currently in production, will focus on an Ojibwe family that moves from the White Earth Indian Reservation in northern Minnesota to the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis. The audience will follow the Red Elk family as they discover a new culture, and how they navigate between the two worlds. Chaske Spencer from the Twilight franchise stars as John Red Elk, the main character. Stacey Thunder plays wife, Elsie. Real-life siblings Mauricimo and S’Nya Sanchez-Hohenstein play John’s son Chris and daughter Rose.
The film’s producer, William Eigen, has been selected to receive financial support from the new film production reimbursement program funded with Arts and Cultural Heritage Funds from Minnesota’s Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment. The Legacy Arts and Cultural Heritage (LACH) Production Reimbursement Program, established by Minnesota Film and TV and Independent Filmmaker Project Minnesota, is designed to support professional, mid-career filmmakers’ feature length narrative or long form documentary projects that align with Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage goals.
The Jingle Dress is set for release Fall 2014. Follow The Jingle Dress movie on Facebook for more updates.
