Director: Kyle Terrence | 20-mins. | Alberta | Avant-Garde

‘Berta Boys is a short film that contemplates the instability of Alberta’s (Canada) hyper masculine identity. In a region whose history and economy is rooted in colonialism, the cowboy mythos, and resource extraction, the landscape itself is not simply a background for events to unfurl. It is instead a primary character in the narrative of identity, an entity cyclically exploited by the desires of men. The landscape has been personified in the film as a sentient truck: a powerful organism fleeing from constant pursuit within the invisible borders of the hunting grounds.
