Smoke Signals

The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (2401 12th Street NW) will be screening writer Sherman Alexie and director Chris Eyre’s groundbreaking 1998 comedy-drama Smoke Signals. The film—starring Adam Beach, Evan Adams, Irene Bedard and Gary Farmer—concerns a nerdy young Native American living on a reservation in Idaho who talks his best friend into going on a quest to reclaim the mortal remains of the man who raised them both. The film won numerous awards and was named one of Alibi’s Top 10 Films of 1998. The film will begin showing at 6:30pm in the courtyard of the IPCC. There will be fresh popcorn, hot frybread and even a lookalike contest for the film’s main characters, Thomas and Victor. A $10 suggested donation gets you in the door. All proceeds will go to benefit the IPCC’s 4th Annual Pueblo Film Festival.
