A Red Deer-raised actor is starring in an indie apocalyptic film being shot in Southern Alberta.
Joel David Taylor is a former Red Deer resident who’s in a movie described as a Bible-tinged Mad Max film.
Father of Nations is being shot by the Alberta production company, Thousand Year Films, with an entirely Canadian cast and crew, using settings around Calgary, Brooks and the Badlands.
The action takes place after a global, catastrophic event, where humanity is on the verge of extinction. Haven is a last functioning colony of survivors that offers hope for those who wander the wasteland.
Father of Nations “ponders some of life’s most timeless and challenging questions about life, hope and death (and) is not afraid to ask questions of God,” says a website for the movie.
A limited theatrical release is planned, said Griffin Cork , an actor and producer with Thousand Years Films.
