In conjunction with the reception for Blood Memoirs: Exploring Individuality, Memory, and Culture through Portraiture, Tweed will present a film screening on Wednesday, October 23rd, from internationally known filmmaker Chris Eyre, who will introduce and show his film "Skins" from 6:00-8:00 pm in Montague Hall 70. Eyre has been described as "the preeminent Native American filmmaker of his time" by People magazine. He directed the highly acclaimed film Smoke Signals, which won the Sundance Audience Award and Sundance Filmmakers Trophy. Skins is an inspirational tale about two brothers living on the Pine Ridge Reservation and the struggles they face individually, and as part of the community. Eyre says "The power of storytelling through film forms the foundation of my directing values. As a Cheyenne/Arapaho filmmaker, my immediate artistic concern has, and continues to be, placing Native North American people and culture into mainstream media."
