1 p.m. Nov. 29, Room 139, Shumaker Research Building, Belknap Campus
Free
Part of the Post-Colonial Film Series with discussion with Simona Bertacco, “Smoke Signals” features two natives of the Coeur D’Alene Reservation. Thomas, who has a sensitive nature and is a storyteller, shows Victor that there’s more to living than cynicism and pent-up anger. Victor, in turn, lets Thomas know what it means to be a real Indian. The film offers the prospect of seeing beyond the stereotypes that plague Native Americans in even the best films.
