SCREENPLAY - SHERMAN ALEXIE
Introduced by Director Chris Eyre.
Sherman Alexie’s screenplay adapts one of his own short stories for the screen, a warm, deeply human tale of life on Idaho’s Coeur D’Alene Indian Reservation as experienced by two very different young men, hothead Victor (Adam Beach) and starry-eyed Thomas (Evan Adams), both struggling to find a way to balance longing towards a traditional culture and the demands of the modern world. A Sundance Film Festival award winner and a landmark work of 90’s indie cinema.
