Rueben Martell is a Cree filmmaker originally hailing from Waterhen Lake Saskatchewan.  A four hour drive from the nearest city, this First Nations reserve serves as the inspiration for the character driven chronicles Rueben writes and directs.

His first feature film, A Life Less Empty, is a raw portrayal of how a legacy of abuse and abandonment chart a course of resilience and ultimately, survival.

PAVED arts is proud to help Rueben realize his dream of bringing this story to screen.
