From the Flathead Reservation Human Rights Coalition

RONAN — Flathead Reservation Human Rights Coalition Presents the Indigenous Film Festival at the Entertainer Theater located on 410 Main Street SW. There is no charge and all films start at 1 p.m., with discussion to follow.


The film schedule and discussion leaders for FRHRC’s free film series at the Entertainer Theatre in Ronan is now set as follows:

October 8 - Reel Injun (a documentary about stereotyping of Natives in films); discussion leader is George Price.

October 15 - The Doe Boy (a film about a teenage hemopheliac who is of mixed blood in a Tribe where blood quantum is very important); discussion leader is Shirley Trahan.

October 22 - Hunt for the Wilderpeople (a film from New Zealand about a child no one wants and his reluctant foster parent); discussion leader is Catherine Baylor.

October 29 - Where the Spirit Lives (a film about a girl taken by force to a residential school in Canada); discussion leader is George Price.

Children under 13 should be accompanied by an adult as a couple films are rated PG13. We have a few short preview videos that will be entertaining for all. These films are award-winning and thought-provoking, and will be shown at 1 pm on Sundays only.

This series is open to the public.

FRHRC is also sponsoring local artists Michael Beers (Blackfeet), stand-up comic and transition specialist for Summit Independent Living, and Brooke Pepion Swaney (Blackfeet/Salish)-- instructor and film-maker, to visit local schools as part of this series.
