In the massive quest for all things authentic by the western world, director/producer Bob Hurst talks about his motivation and inspiration behind an upcoming independent film called Joan Dark, slated to be released in 2011.

The storyline is of a woman engineer who spent two cycles in Iraq, was in a fire fight and while she was down there, accidentally killed children. She comes back to her mid-western American town and re-emerges as a knight. In tilting wind mills, her mission is to spread “good in the world,” albeit with an arrogant personality.

An interview with Hurst below at this year’s SXSW.
