Hey Viktor!

2023 / Canada / 102 Minutes / Cody Lightning

Film Synopsis

Twenty years removed from childhood fame as Little Viktor in 1998’s Smoke Signals, CODY LIGHTNING has been forced to move home to his reserve in northern Alberta. He still believes himself to be famous— even though the only parts he gets these days are porn & fracking commercials.

But when Cody learns his wife and kids are leaving him for a younger, more successful actor, he decides it’s time to quit fucking around and make his masterpiece— writing, directing, & starring in SMOKE SIGNALS 2: STILL SMOKING.

A documentary crew follows Cody on his journey around the Indigenous world— re-uniting the original cast, borrowing money from arms dealers, & realizing his vision… just in time to realize his vision was shit.
