Episode Info: The Two Gay Geeks 🏳️‍🌈 have a chat with Erica Tremblay and Kasia Chmielinski, Director and Producer of the short film Little Chief that will be premiering at Sundance Film Festival. We chat about how they made the film and where and discover a connection I have (very tenuously) with the place of filming. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.   About Erica Tremblay Erica Tremblay (Seneca-Cayuga) is a filmmaker and activist currently studying her Indigenous language on the Six Nations reservation in Ontario, Canada. Her work has been featured on PBS, CNN, and IFC. Erica’s films explore topics including restorative justice and issues impacting the two-spirit community. She has worked with many grassroots organizations, including the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center and the Healing Native Hearts Coalition. Erica was recently honored as a 40 Under 40 Native American by the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development (NCAIED) and was a 2018 Sundance Native Filmmakers Lab Fellow. About Little Chief ☀☀☀ Filmed with quiet resilience and against the bleak landscape of a rural reservation in Oklahoma, Little Chief tells the story of Sharon, an exhausted school teacher struggling to keep her head and her school above water. Her student, Bear, is having a particularly hard time enduring challenges both at home and in the classroom. As she watches Bear unravel, Sharon is ultimately forced to accept her role as an imperfect role model, the unlikely matriarch her community needs. Bear becomes desperate to escape it all, and Sharon is left chasing a little boy who is running to nowhere. ❀❀❀❀ In our second segment, we chat about the new season of Doctor Who. We also highlight recent articles posted to the tggeeks.com in the past week. As always we have our birthdays and we have the ever-popular feedback segment. We welcome your feedback. Please, let us know what you think. Good or bad, we want to know and you could receive a shoutout in the feedback segment. Thank you for listening, we really do appreciate you taking time out of your day to spend with us.     Our YouTube channel is audio only:   Show Notes / Links: TG Geeks Episode 256 Short Film CREATION, Now Online!
