TRAILER: https://vimeo.com/341887536

Hard-Boiled Noir Meets Hipster Chill In This Tale Of Familial Strife And Vigilante Justice.

Inspired by the true stories of numerous South Asian truck drivers
arrested and convicted of trafficking narcotics into Canada through the
Detroit/Windsor border, web series The
410
, created and written by Supinder
Wraich
,
will have its international premiere at the 2020 Slamdance Film Festival, in the Episodic Category. 

In this bold and diverse drama, Wraich has penned a gripping story that celebrates her own culture and filmed in an environment she’s very familiar with, the trucking community. After airing on CBC Gem, a Canadian digital platform, the second episode of this 3-part mini series is the one to be screened at the festival.

In The 410, a daughter comes face to face with her community’s underworld, as she desperately tries to bail her father out of jail. The story takes a fast-paced, fictionalized dive into the underbelly of Brampton ON, a mostly blue-collar South Asian suburb just outside Toronto, Canada.

Supported by Telefilm
Canada
’s Talent
to Watch
 program and featuring an all-star diverse cast
including Jade Hassouné
(Shadow Hunters) Cas Anvar (The Expanse) and Hamza Haq (Quantico), the series shines a light on
real issues facing the South Asian Community under the guise of a
crime/thriller.

“It was very
important for me to write not just a female protagonist, but a South Asian
female anti-hero. So often as an actor, the characters I’m asked to play are
very much written as a ‘good girl, educated, follows the rules’ sort of
archetype,”
says creator and
leading star Supinder Wraich. “This
time, I wanted to play a lead character that was messy, nuanced, and troubled
and often you don’t see those roles cast with South Asian women, so I wrote it
for myself,” she adds.

“It was also a blast to work with an all-South Asian cast (a rarity!) and to craft characters that were conflicted, messy, and deeply flawed,” comments director Renuka Jeyapalan.

The 410 is written and created by South Asian Actress, Supinder Wraich (The Good Doctor, The Expanse). Directed by fellow South Asian filmmaker Renuka Jeyapalan (Kim’s Convenience, Workin’ Moms). Produced by Iva Golubovic and Gabriel Badejo. Executive producers: Matt Power, Rey Mendoza, Mauricio Ruiz, Adam Rodness and Stuart Stone. Cinematography by Ian Macmillan.
