Burn Your Maps – Behind the scenes
On the set of Burn Your Maps, the story of a family in emotional turmoil
that is taken by surprise in this quirky adventure.
“A family in emotional turmoil is taken by surprise in this quirky adventure about an eccentric eight-year-old boy named Wes who has a remarkable existential epiphany – he believes that he is in fact a Mongolian goat herder. This delightful comedy drama stars Jacob Tremblay (so good in last year’s DIFF opener THE ROOM) as the youngster who is convinced he is born in the wrong place. Wes starts to adopt the ways of a Mongolian goat herder. He convinces his mother to take him on a soul-searching journey to Mongolia, with their trip recorded by Ismail (Suraj Sharma), an aspiring filmmaker.”
So, they actually shot the film in Calgary, Alberta in Canada and not in Mongolia… well, at least they hired real Mongolians as extras!
There are also three new posters, take a look below:
