The Ernie Game

Fortnight 1969, Feature film,


This film was part of a proposed trio of works intended to celebrate the Canadian Centennial. It centres around Ernie Turner and his attempts to survive in the world after he’s released from an asylum. He grows increasingly alienated and his fragile mental state declines, moving between two women, ex-girlfriend and current lover.
