Jason Goode’s first feature film Numb is the closing gala screening at the 15th annual Whistler Film Festival next Sunday. Shot in the Okanagan Valley for 18 days this year from mid-February to early March, the survival thriller is about a debt-strapped Vancouver couple who team up with sibling hitchhikers to search for stolen gold in the winter wilderness. Recently unemployed Will (Jamie Bamber) picks up hitchikers Lee (Aleks Paunovic) and Cheryl (The 100’s Maria Avgeropoulos) in northern BC to his wife Dawn (Stefanie von Pfetten)’s dismay. When Will’s next pickup dies with GPS coordinates in his wallet the gold hunt is on. Turns out the elderly man was a bank robber and the coordinates should lead them to $4 million in gold he’d stashed nearby that was never recovered by the police. What could go wrong?
