Salvage

Queer Indie Feature Film

Salvage is a character-driven drama that explores the complexity of family and belonging. Ma Lavender owns a scrapyard. Here, in this place of the discarded, she fosters four children (Jewels, Missy, Maylis, Summer) brought together by terrible histories of abuse. Ostracized because of their ‘otherness’, they live a cloistered life that is rich in wonders, both in the scrapyard and nearby woods. She is the light. The one who salvages lives.

 

But when Lavender suddenly dies, they are thrust into adulthood and shifting roles. A social worker, Harper, looking out for their ‘best interests’ arrives, as the outside world and past secrets threaten to separate them. Lost in grief, trying to cope with the loss of the woman who held them together, their fragile world is coming undone. The pressure is on Jewels, the eldest, to protect them, but she is running from traumas that she can’t speak about.

As relationships fracture, Jewels will make an immense sacrifice to love. And choose her family.

When the forest is gone

A crew of 10 tree planters rolls up to a 20-hectare clear-cut block in Northern BC. The 8 hours of sleep they got the night before felt like 2 minutes. Each one is absorbed in their own coping mechanisms to get through the day, cigarettes and stimulants, energy drinks, and painkillers. As the logging road busts through the trees into a clear cut, they see their work for the day, a carnage of tree stumps and chewed up logs on the steep, vertical, incline of a BC mountain slope. Competition to out-earn and out-plant each other outweighs the magnitude of the task and the crew dives into the onslaught of the job’s demands. 

 

There is solitude to be found on the block, a form that will push each person to the very edge of who they are as they struggle to find peace in the strange days of isolation and a spectacle of self-growth. As the planters find themselves farther away from society as we know it, they find love, discover their sexual orientation, deal with issues of mental health, drug addictions, and loss. They each face the worst and the best of their own nature; pushing themselves as hard as possible into new horizons, and in the end, a new version of themselves awaits.
