A vintage television program features a young women telling a tale of doomed romance.

Director Biography - Alex Leigh Barker

Born in 1982, Alex Leigh Barker spent a chunk of her teenage years with her parents VCRs hooked together to create pre-Internet "super cuts" of her favourite flicks. Upon graduating from high school she was accepted into SFU where she garnered a BFA in film and decided to focus on editing as a career. After synching countless music video and stringing out dozens upon dozen of corporate videos, Alex slowly worked her way towards the kind of creative projects with talented folks that most kids who join the film industry aim to start making. She is especially proud to have worked on the CBC documentary What Happens Next: A Portrait of Dan Mangan (2012) and the feature films Doppelgänger Paul (2011), and Songs That She Wrote About People She Knows (2014), both of which went on to become official selections of the Toronto International Film Festival, as well as In The Absence of Angels (2018) which went on to screen at Slamdance. In 2017 she won the Leo for best editing of a dramatic short for The Goodnight Kiss.

She currently lives in East Vancouver with her two cats, and two humans (a husband and daughter).

Director Statement

I have always wanted to be part of the movies. After garnering my BFA in film, I found my way into that world professionally as a picture editor. I love bringing the pieces of a film together but I have missed being involved in the creation of those pieces from the start. This film was made while under quarantine by a team of post production professionals, all of us getting to experiment in our areas and bringing our good old love of storytelling to the forefront of the process.

About The Event

Ted Geoghegan 2017, USA, 91 mins

The War of 1812 has revived violent hostilities between the British and their erstwhile American colonial subjects. The powerful Mohawk nation of the New York region is divided as to whom they should stand by, and so they maintain a position of neutrality. They want no part in the killing – but the killing is coming to them. An impulsive attack on an American encampment has drawn the vengeful attentions of a ragged band of American military renegades, led by the vicious, racist Hezekiah Holt. Oak, Calvin, and their British lover Joshua flee into the woods so familiar to them, but the murderous musketeers on their trail will not be deterred. Not without the spilling of blood.
