Documentary crew keeps asking First Nations elder to talk to crow

VANCOUVER (The News Desk) – While shooting footage for an upcoming environmental documentary on Wednesday, a Vancouver film crew repeatedly interrupted an interview with a Musqueam elder to ask if she could talk to a nearby crow.

“Could you maybe talk to that crow over there for a bit? We just need to shoot some b-roll,” said producer Kyle Evans.

“I’m sorry, did you say ‘talk to the crow?’” said a visibly annoyed Carol Smith, a 74-year-old member of the Musqueam First Nation.

“Yeah, yeah, crow. Talk to its spirit. Ask it for guidance. Whatever,” replied Evans.

The crew was reportedly disappointed when Smith showed up for their appointment in jeans and a parka, telling her that “a button blanket and one of those wooden hat things” would have looked better on film.

When the crow flew away, Evans quickly turned his attention to a stump. “What about the stump? Can you talk to that?” ♦
