TLAM will be watching Smoke Signals this Friday at 7:30pm in the Cataloging Lab!
Smoke Signals is an independent film released in 1998, directed and co-produced by Chris Eyre and with a screenplay by Sherman Alexie, based on the short story “This is What it Means to Say Phoenix, Arizona” from his book The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven (1993). The film won several awards and accolades, and was well received at numerous film festivals.
The film is unique as an all-Native American production: producers, director, screenwriter (Alexie), actors and technicians. Alexie wanted to give them all a chance to shine.
Bring something to snack and come hang out at SLIS this Friday!
