I was doing some research for the short film I’m considering making. It was originally to be based off of the Parable of the Two Wolves. I found two interesting bits.
- I found a version of the Parable that has a much better ending, and I instantly gravitated towards it.
- I then found out that the Parable is a lie. It was created by an evangelical preacher for a sermon. He falsely attributed it to Native Americans for impact. I was initially concerned about how to use this as a basis for a short film without appropriation and wanted to pay respect to the culture that originated the Parable. Seems like that’s totally out the window now. So I’m rethinking it completely.
