Join Mountain FM for a special evening of live music, film and interviews with the critically-acclaimed Calgary band Boreal Sons, including the premiere of Canmore writer-director Mike Yudcovitch’s short film Stay, which features the band’s song Refrain.
Filmed in Canmore and starring Mountain FM's Gord Elser and Marcus Williams, Stay is about a world-weary drunk's descent into self-destruction being diverted by a chance encounter with a dog.
Sublime and intimate, Boreal Sons meld such disparate worlds as classical composition and atmospheric art-rock, walking the line between delicacy and drama with distinct lyrical poetry and a strong desire for experimentation.
Mike Yudcovitch is a freelance screenwriter and registered psychologist, who lives in Canmore. He is a graduate of the Vancouver Film School (VFS) Writing for Film & Television Program. He has also earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from the University of Calgary and a Master of Arts Degree in Counseling Psychology from Pacific University, Oregon. He is, currently, pursuing his passions for film, writing, and psychology towards realizing of his dream of becoming a professional screenwriter. The first short film he authored, 'Booze, Sex & Communism' (2011), was an Official Selection of the 2012 Victoria International Film Festival and the second short film he penned, Miss Pearlman (2011), appeared on an episode of PIE, a television show on KCTS-9, a public television network serving Seattle, Central Washington, and British Columbia. 'Miss Pearlman' was also an Official Selection of the 2013 Whistler Film Festival. The third short film he wrote, 'Caffé E Amore' (2012), was produced by Warmland Films, a Vancouver-based film company, with whom he has also collaborated on a feature-length screenplay.
