Indigenous film series scheduled

RONAN — The Flathead Reservation Human Rights Coalition, Inc. and the Entertainer Theatre in Ronan are pleased to announce their partnership again this October.

This year as part of our Native American and Indigenous film series we are showing “Reel Injun,” (a documentary about stereotyping of Natives in films); “The Doe Boy,” (a film about a teenage hemopheliac who is of mixed blood in a Tribe where blood quantum is very important); “Hunt for the Wilderpeople,” (a film from New Zealand about a child no one wants and his reluctant foster parent) and, “Where the Spirit Lives,” ( a film about a girl taken by force to a residential school in Canada).

Discussions about the topics of each film follow the shows. Children under 13 years of age should be accompanied by an adult as a couple of the films are rated PG13. The films will be shown at 1 p.m. on Sundays only. A more detailed schedule will soon be available.

This series is open to the public. If you have questions, call 406-745-4259.
