David and Bert

Top of page

A film portrait of two remarkable old-timers of Vancouver Island's west coast, both in their 80s, both with an enviable zest for life. Chief David Frank teaches the ancient Indian songs and dances of his people to some sixty grandchildren. Bert Clayton still backpacks his prospector's gear through high mountain bush. From different cultures, these two share over forty years of friendship and a mutual philosophy of life.

1975, 27 min 20 s
