Documentary The Last Dogs Of Winter
, which features Caleb Ross
, will be showing in Glasgow, as part of the Glasgow Film Festival
The film will be shown at 3:30PM on Thursday 23rd February at the Glasgow Film Theatre. Tickets are £8. To book tickets, click here.
Brian Ladoon is the kind of wilderness man who seems tailor-made for a Werner Herzog film. In 1976, Ladoon began a lifelong mission to protect and preserve the beautiful Canadian Eskimo dog qimmiq which is the rarest registered breed of dog in the world. The dogs once numbered in their thousands but had been reduced to hundreds by the late 1970s. The Last Dogs of Winter tells Ladoon’s story and that of Caleb Ross, a young New Zealand actor who travelled to Churchill, Manitoba in search of adventure and stayed three years. An inspirational documentary with awe-inspiring footage of the landscapes, the dogs and the polar bears who share their territory. This film will screen with beautiful animated short Amaqqut Nunaat (The Country of Wolves, 11min), winner of the prestigious Best Short Drama and Best Emerging Artist awards at the ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival 2011. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: The Edge of the World.

attended the Toronto International Film Festival 2011
for the world premiere of the documentary The Last Dogs Of Winter
, in which he features and had creative input.
The movie, which premiered at TIFF on September 9th, received a standing ovation from a capacity filled showing of the documentary. The ovation was received when director Costa Botes with film subjects Brian Ladoon and Caleb Ross went to the stage for a Q & A session. (Source: Stuff.co.nz)
Variety.com gave a positive review on the documentary, describing it as an “Intimate, gorgeously rendered docu… Costa Botes intelligently surveys Ladoon’s quixotic mission, the numerous obstacles he faces, and the uneasy co-existence of man, animal and nature in the small town of Churchill (pop. 873). A wilderness lover’s delight, “Dogs” reps a shoo-in for cablers, fests and the cinematheque circuit.”
Speaking to Helen Barlow of the New Zealand Herald, Caleb said the following, “The film received a standing ovation and I have to admit I was a little choked up. The Q & A session went very well. People were coming up to us saying it’s a great movie, very moving and very informative, so I couldn’t have asked for any better. One of the comments Costa got from the crowd was that it’s funny [for Canadians] to be taught about their native heritage by a Kiwi. I guess it’s one of those issues that not a lot of people know about, which is why this story needed to be told”.
As usual, for the latest news on the film visit the official website/blog for The Last Dogs Of Winter. With thanks to Hil for the info. Cheers :) There’s still allot of articles out there on the doc, it’s worth googling and checking out.

. In the movie Antonia will play the role of a biochemist named Beth Wakefield. The film will be shot in Wellington this November.
“The film is about a young female researcher [Beth] whose life is in danger when she discovers the pharmaceutical company she works for had developed a cure for cancer many years earlier. They haven’t released it because that would destroy their chemotherapy drug sales. She must now escape and release the cure to the world while the company tries to stop her.”

Yay, with thanks to Marie, here’s some pics of the awesome Michelle Ang
in movie The Beaver
Here’s a bit about Michelle’s appearance in the film by Marie:
In the movie Michelle appears briefly in a scene at the start where Jodie Foster’s character Meredith Black is working at home [Jodie also directed the film]. Michelle Ang is shown on Meredith’s computer screen as a Japanese translator. We can’t hear what she says as there is a voice over in the scene talking about Meredith’s dedication to her job working on Japanese rollercoasters/theme park. Michelle’s appearance is one of those blink and you’ll miss it moments! She is also uncredited at the end of the movie. But it was great to see her and the film is pretty good too if you like character movies/family dramas. Mel Gibson plays Walter Black, the lead role, in the movie.
The Beaver is out now on DVD in America, click here to check it out. It is released in Germany (Der Biber) on October 6th (info here) and in the UK on October 10th (info here).
, a TV movie made for TVNZ, was broadcast on Sunday 14th August 2011. The film featured Fleur Saville
(The Tribe’s Ruby) as the character Eva Peacocke, a friend/confident to the lead female character Nerissa Love, played by Rose McIver.
Check out a video clip featuring Fleur Saville, Rose McIver and Ryan O’Kane (as Bob Blair) in the Tangiwai:
Fleur is definitely looking fab post Shortland Street, where she became a household name in her role as Libby Jeffries. The movie was a dramatisation of a true account of one persons life, which was affected by the Tangiwai traincrash in New Zealand in 1953.
We previously mentioned the production and Fleur’s appearance in it in February.
