The multi-award winning production by students from the Aboriginal Mentorship Program, Argyle Alternative High School. Released in 2008, the main action of the story takes place today, in a rooming house in Winnipeg, rather than on a farm in California. Lennie and George are displaced Aboriginal teenagers who have left the desolation of their remove northern community to drift across southern Manitoba looking for work.
A powerful and creative adaptation is served by strong acting and well-mastered filmmaking.
The film will be introduced by the instructors involved in the project, John Barrett and Dave Berg, and some of the cast/crew will be at the screening.
