About

"Red Hand"

Written and directed by Rodrick Pocowatchit

Director of Photography: James Rhiley

Pitch: Think of this film as a Native American "The Matrix" meets "The Terminator." Only with a few more laughs.

About us: We do a lot with very little, and we know you don't just go around throwing your hard-earned money into the wind. So your support will be used entirely toward the making of the film and equipment rental. 

Team Rawdzilla is a hard-working group of film lovers in Kansas. We've made three feature films all with Native American themes, including the world's first (that we know of) Native American zombie comedy-drama, "The Dead Can't Dance." We've also made 18 short films, covering such genres as drama, comedy and horror. All done in Wichita, Kansas! 

"Red Hand" synopsis: 

The year is 2081. America is in shambles after a widespread disease killed off most of the civilization, paving room for a group called The Nation to take over. The Nation only recognizes one race -- their own. All minorities are forced into slave labor to work on rebuilding civilization.

A small group of rebels has formed, led by Mary, a technical genius who’s formulating a widespread hack that would take down The Nation’s all-encompassing computer system. But she needs one piece of information that would have been developed by Michael Warrior, also a tech genius, who died in 2016 of an incurable disease. So Mary develops a time portal to travel back and save Michael so that the Native race can be preserved.

But The Nation discovers the rebels’ hideaway and attack. Mary is killed, forcing John, the man secretly in love with her, to travel back in time not only to bring down The Nation, but to save her, too.

He accompanies the man with the power to heal, Matthew, and Zyan, a former officer of The Nation who vows to take conquer it when his own family is innocently killed.

Meanwhile, in the year 2016, an eccentric artist and psychic named Hugo has foreseen a man coming from the future. He has drawn a series of comic books about the man he calls Red Hand, which have built a loyal fan base of believers who stand ready.

Hugo finds the time travelers upon their arrival and excitedly explains that he has been waiting for them.

But The Nation has sent another officer to stop them at any cost. 

The men must act quickly -- energy created by newly found black holes is the only energy strong enough to fuel the time travel portal. They only have 48 hours to find Michael Warrior and save him before the portal is closed forever.

Which leaves the fate of Native people hanging in the balance. Because the future must be rewritten.

Risks and challenges

Challenges: We plan to shoot in the summer and early fall. Potential setbacks would include weather and day job scheduling conflicts. But we've done it all before and made it all work, and we will again!
