The passengers are dead on board due to a deliberate lack of Oxygen and after landing in North Korea are buried in a mass grave. Our two protagonists, (a Male and a Female) escape and witness all the brutal heartless activity. They establish there is a preplanned elaborate plot which is turning they aircraft into flying bomb destined for Israel. They go through several dangerous situations to get out of North Korea with this vital information and realize they are in the middle of a spy game and have to establish who they can really trust?

An Action/Adventure/ Thriller

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

This would make a thrilling action movie, albeit it does contain some disconcerting scenes that are pivotal to the story. It’s a never been done before story and it does not fall into the category of a usual copycat movie.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Making movies, assuming the funding can be raised which is always the difficult part.

What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

I thought your festival had a different flair as if what one had written and was selected to be read, it would make am great promotional tool that may interest a production company with access to to a larger budget. I could so it myself but could not raise the budget that this production would require.

Best Scene Screenplay Reading of THE LAST INDIAN WAR by Michael Graf

 

Best Scene from THE LAST INDIAN WAR Screenplay
Written by Michael Graf

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Val Cole
POP WARNER – Matthew Lawrence
FRANK HUDSON – Cory Bertrand
SAM AMERICNA HORSE – Peter-Mark Raphael
RICHARD PRATT – Vince Jerad

SYNOPSIS:

Genre: Action, Sports, History, Drama

The Last Indian War is the incredibly moving coming of age story about the forced re-location of Native American Indian children and the birth of the modern game of football. It’s the true-life saga behind the most important football game ever played: the Carlisle –  Army football game of 1912.

Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

The Last Indian War is the inspirational true-life story about football’s origin and one of the greatest games ever played – the quest for the 1912 national championship between Native American Indians and the Army Cadets of West Point.

What genres does your screenplay under?

True Story/Historical/Western/Sports

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

This is the ultimate underdog movie. It’s about a group of Native American Indian children kidnapped by the US Military that go on and basically invent the modern game of American football. They fight racism and overcome so much to prove to themselves – and the world – that they have worth and dignity and that by working together they can achieve anything.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Truly Inspirational.

What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

That’s a tough one. Probably Star Wars.

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

Including research? About 10 years.

How many stories have you written?

This is my second.

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

It’s an amazing story – and an amazing part of American and sports history – that I knew nothing about. I also have a personal connection to the story – my grandfather bought his first house from Pop Warner.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Keeping true to the characters. These were real people and I feel an incredible responsibility to get their story right, but also to try and do so in an entertaining way that audiences can relate to.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Curling.

Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Find a story you’re passionate about. That passion will keep you motivated when times get tough.
