Meet 18-year-old Shelby Lincoln Mark, who last year was voted "best dressed" by his peers at Shiprock High School and this year is appearing in his first feature-length film.
The independently produced film "Jordan" hits theaters this year and has prompted Mark, a freshman at the University of New Mexico studying political science, to make a lofty New Year's resolution.
"I want to do two more movies this year," he said. "Maybe a horror movie or something with zombies."
"Plus, the landscapes there were incredible and something you can't find anywhere else in the world," Rousseau said.
Of the 20 cast members, four are American Indian and three, including Mark, are native New Mexico residents, Rousseau said. Writer Karin Williams also is from New Mexico.
"Jordan," a film Rousseau describes as a suspenseful nail-biter, follows a 5-year-old girl seeking help for her injured mother after a car accident on a remote mountain highway. The girl, Jordan, stumbles into the sheriff's office after walking all night, but convincing the sheriff that her mother is in the forest proves daunting when another woman arrives claiming to be her mother.
