Completely shot on PEI, with director of photography Christopher Ball (camera operator for The Lighthouse, Aquaman), the film stars Ry Barrett (Open Your Eyes, The Demolisher), Colin Price (Murdoch Mysteries, Disasters at Sea) and Christina McInulty (Til Ex Do Us Part).
Still the Water is about a despairing hockey player who returns home to PEI, but his reappearance fuels jealousy and the emergence of a long-buried, painful truth. It features music from Catherine MacLellan, Irish Mythen, Nathan Wiley, and the song “Blood and Salt Water” written for the film by Lennie Gallant. Nicolle Morrison was Executive Producer and Rick Gibbs was Producer.
Written, produced, directed by Rodgers, the film was primarily funded by private equity via PEI’s provincially regulated Community Economic Development Business (CEDB) share program.
