Phoenix is a big deal around St. Benedict’s
May 30, 2018 - Grade 7 student Phoenix Wilson is no stranger to film and in June he’s headed to Utah to work with Award winning Director & Actor Robert Redford.

Wilson was handpicked by up and coming director Lyle Corbine to be part of a Director’s Lab with Robert Redford on the Director’s panel. Redford will also be giving Phoenix feedback on his acting skills along the way.

The film, called “Wild Indian” will feature Phoenix as “Makwa” a kid who is on the edge of taking the wrong path in life.

Phoenix recognizes this is a big deal but he is very much a humble grade 7 student.

Phoenix will depart in mid June for Sundance, Utah to stay at the Sundance Resort in Utah which is owned by Redford.

He was featured in Longmire, a popular series on Netflix as well as a number of Cinefest films over the years.
