Madison’s Rob Pero signs on to produce historical film “The Last Indian War”


From Blueprint365.

Perodigm Films founder and award-winning film producer Rob Pero joins Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Graf as executive producer on the production of Graf’s screenplay “The Last Indian War”, according to a press release issued Wednesday.

The film will represent the true-life saga behind “the most important football game ever played,” the Carlisle vs. Army football game of 1912. In that game, Carlisle’s team, led by coach “Pop” Warner and star player Jim Thorpe, soundly defeated Dwight D. Eisenhower and the West Point team, 27-6.

Pero and the Wisconsin-based Perodigm Films team will collaborate on the production alongside Graf, to ensure an authentic portrayal of Indigenous people and the delicate historical significance of boarding schools in US history.

Perodigm Films’ Indigenous-led team includes Samantha Skenandore (Ho-Chunk) as co-producer and legal counsel, Ryan Freng of Backflip Media as co-producer and creative executive, actor and former NFL player Alvin Cowan as producer, and actor and musician Ryan Carnes as producer.
