Down The Road Again

















Gotta send some love to my Pops. Donald Shebib. The man who taught me how be critical of my craft. How to strive for excellence as an artist and in life.
Hes working on his new film, a sequel to his legendary Canadian Classic "Goin' Down The Road". Tonight is his last night of shooting, and i wanted to wish him luck.
This is an exerpt from a recent interview by the Torontoist.com, Reminds me where i came from. Read the whole interview by CLICKING HERE.

Q: Knowing that the original had such an impact on Canadian cinema in a way that, presumably, you couldn’t have anticipated—

A: Oh I had no idea.

Q: But what would you say your hopes are for the sequel?

A: I hope that it proves that Canadians can make films that touch people, and that can make people cry. I don’t like Canadian films.

Q: Why’s that?

A: They’re fucking boring. They’re unemotional. I’m famous for putting them down. I’ve been doing it for twenty-five years. We’ve made too many dull, boring, Canadian movies. When they start making fun of Canadian films on South Park, then it’s fucking enough.

















What a legend...
Heres the opening scene from the original 1970 Classic.
