Four artists from the roster of North Carolina indie imprint Ramseur Records will appear on the soundtrack to Barking Water, an official Sundance Film Festival selection set to screen later this month during the festivities Park City, Utah.
Written and directed by Sterlin Harjo, the film follows Frankie (Richard Ray Whitman) and Irene (Casey Camp-Horinek), a modern-day, middle-aged Native American couple, on a life-and-love affirming journey across Oklahoma. The fictional couple shares a home state with Harjo himself, as well as singer/songwriter Samantha Crain, who contributes three songs to the film.
The folks behind Ramseur get a music supervision credit for their work on the soundtrack, which includes "Scissor Tales," "In Smithereens, The Search For Affinity" and "Labor Day" by Crain and her Midnight Shivers; "Traveling from North Carolina" by Paleface; "One Two Three" by Bombadil; and "Out On The Highway" by The Everybodyfields.
In 2006, Harjo was one of the 50 inaugural recipients of the United States Artists Fellowships, and the first Native American to recieve the honor. In 2004, he was named one of the Sundance Institute's first five recipients of the Annenberg Foundation Film fellowship, which allowed for the production of Barking Water.
