Episode Ten: Luvia Petersen
Luvia Petersen is a strong woman who plays strong women on screen. Luvia was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for her work as ass-kicking future terrorist Garza on Continuum, and her filmography includes similarly ass-kicking roles on Ghost Wars, The Murders, and Michelle Muldoon’s highly anticipated film Last Stand To Nowhere, which re-imagines the Gunfight at the OK Corral with an all-female cast. Now, Luvia is bringing her strength, grit, and vision to the director’s chair, while still acting and still running Liquid Amber Tattoo and Art Collective, the tattoo parlour and gallery she co-founded in 2001. In this boisterous interview with Sabrina Furminger, Luvia talks directing, Vancouver’s thriving witch scene, and embodying strength on and off the screen.
