Who Wants To Be An Amerikan

Who Wants To Be An Amerikan

The film is a retro look at a fantasy Soviet-era game show where contestants compete to see who really deserves to get the big prize – a lifetime vacation in the land that begat Mark Twain, Thomas Edison and Britney Spears. Despite it’s short length, it is still a very compelling and surprisingly well-acted film.

“I wanted to make a point about the ugliness of extreme nationalism, but I’m not anti-American and neither is the film,” Beckum says.

He attributes his success in this increasingly violent and profane world to his walk with God and his commitment to uphold his values. “I’m lucky to be pursuing my passions while surrounded by people I love. I thank God every day for the gift of being able to create and speak through art.”

Directed by Aaron Beckum/ Canada / 2006
