“Detective Roy Harris’s life has been sliding off the rails for some time. Haunted by the loss of his family and obsessed with a missing persons case, Roy is faced with a fork in the road, forcing him to face his emotional demons.”
Blending elements of a crime thriller and a contemporary social drama, DOWN HERE is an 89 minute feature film set in Vancouver’s downtown Eastside. Starring Dean Wray (Convict Cowboy, 88 Minutes, Reindeer Games) as Detective Roy Harris and Tantoo Cardinal (Dances with Wolves, Black Robe, Legends of the Fall) as Stella Mitchell, DOWN HERE follows the troubled life of Detective Roy Harris, an alcoholic detective fighting to find a murderer in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. As Roy struggles to catch the killer targeting young prostitutes, he can’t escape the haunting, family demons of his past and falls prey to addiction himself. An unexpected encounter with Stella Mitchell brings with it a shot at redemption, but will he embrace sobriety in time? Supporting cast boasts Martin Cummins (Devour, Stargate SG-1, We all Fall Down) as Det. Tim Brown, Teach Grant (Down River, Almost Human, Mr. Hockey) as transvestite prostitute Yvnonne and Michael Rogers (Over the Black Rainbow, Continuum, Fringe) as Dr. Miller.
DOWN HERE was executive produced by Shawna Wray and Dean Wray, directed by Teach Grant and produced by Teach Grant and Crystal Braunwarth. The film was written by Dean Wray and Teach Grant. The sound design was created by Primetime Emmy nominee and six time Leo winner Kirby Jinnah and DP’d by talented newcomer, Adam Myhill.
