Karl Jacob is an actor, writer, director and film producer who grew up on the Iron Range. His most recent release, Cold November, opens tonight in both Hibbing and Grand Rapids. Filmed in northern Minnesota, the film follows the life of 12 year old Florence and the influences of her matriarchal family as she experiences the right of passage of her first deer kill.
We spoke with Karl about the film, what influenced him to create it, how northern Minnesota is essentially a character in the movie and how, in light of recent events, his subject matter is inspiring some thoughtful conversations about guns.
