Okanagan Film Commissioner, Jon Summerland, says with a small budget at under a million dollars, the producers are looking for help in gathering everything 1990's.

"We're looking for 90's cars, or anything pre-90's. We need 90's clothes and gadgets like Walkmans, TV's, books and Nintendos," says Summerland."We need a 90's basement, honestly, we're looking for somebody's house that's still got a basement that we all hung out in the 90's." 

The independent film, Sepia Films 8th in the Okanagan, will begin shooting at various locations in and around Kelowna starting March 23rd.

"They'll be all over Kelowna on downtown streets, there's a convenience store, a couple of different houses, they'll do some mountain climbing, a graveyard and a high school," says Summerland. 

He says the film is based on the award-winning novel by Joanne Proulx titled "Anthem of a Reluctant Prophet".
