The McCall Film Society presents “ Bad Lucky Goat”, Wednesday, January 10th at 7 pm at the Alpine Playhouse, 1210 Roosevelt Ave., McCall. “Bad Lucky Goat” is a comedy that takes place on a Caribbean island. Two incompatible teenage siblings embark on a day of comedic misadventures and a journey of reconciliation after accidentally killing a bearded goat with their father’s truck. Hollywood Reporter states “The light but evocative result proves as inviting as a gentle tropical breeze.”
“ Bad Lucky Goat” was an official selection of South by Southwest and BFI London Film Festival in 2017. The film was shot on location in Old Providence, a small island in the Colombian Caribbean. Due to its remote location, the island has remained intact to major development, making it the perfect place to shoot the ﬁlm. On the island things are rusty, outdated and seem to be stuck in a time warp, factors that were used to our advantage to give the ﬁlm a unique look. The Director Samir Oliveros was born in Bogota, Columbia and financed his first feature film by $60,000 contributions from kickstarter.
Advanced tickets will be available at the McCall Public Library, starting Thursday, January 4th until 3 pm Wednesday, the day of the show. Additional tickets will be available at the door. All tickets are free.
“I ﬁnd it fascinating how even after being raised under the same roof, some siblings can be so different from one another. How they can live together for years sharing practically everything without really knowing each other.
That’s the case with Corn and Rita Denton. I wanted to create a situation where the characters would have to get out of their comfort zones and clash while under pressure, so they could see every aspect of each other’s personality. This journey takes the protagonists through a compelling adventure where they will have to work together to solve their problems.
I wanted to make an honest movie, while preserving the pristine conditions found on the island, dramatizing the situations the characters went through but keeping everything else in its natural state. The characters were be played by ﬁrst-time actors, locations were not altered or majorly decorated, all dialogues are in Creole and the score only contains instruments found on the island.” – Samir Oliveros
