Four Sheets to the Windand Sikumi (On the Ice) on Thursday, July 10 at 7:30 pm

Hello,
The Walker Art Center with the Sundance Institute’s Native American Initiative is proud to present a free film screening of Four Sheets to the Windand Sikumi (On the Ice) on Thursday, July 10 at 7:30 pm (details below).  Four Sheets to the Wind is a coming-of-age drama set within the rythms and landscapes of Oklahoma , depicting a young man’s search for identity on the reservation and beyond. Short film, Sikumi (On the Ice) is a story of an Inuit hunter driving his dog sled team out on the frozen Artic Ocean and inadvertently witnessing a murder.  These two compelling films were mentored through the Sundance Institute’s Native American Initiative.  Both emerging directors will be present to discuss their films.
We’d really appreciate if you would spread the word about these amazing films.  Feel free to forward on this email, include this info in e-newletters, or put it on your website.  Below is more info on the films and I hope you can make it to the screening too!  If you have any questions or would like to receive film flyers, please contact me at brianne.whitcraft@walkerart.org or 612.375.7684.

Bri

Four Sheets to the Wind
Introduced by director Sterlin Harjo
This coming-of-age drama set within the rhythms and landscapes of Oklahoma depicts a young man in search of his identity on the reservation and beyond. Featuring a performance of quiet intensity by Cody Lightning, the film delicately balances the pathos and humor inherent in this transitional community. A project of the Sundance Lab, Four Sheets to the Wind won a Special Jury Prize at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. 2007, in English and Muskogee with English subtitles, 35mm, 91 minutes. Preceded by Sikumi (On the Ice)
Introduced by director Andrew Okpeaha MacLean
The first film ever made in the Iñupiaq language tells the story of an Inuit hunter who drives his dog team out onto the frozen Arctic Ocean and inadvertently witnesses a murder. Winner of a 2008 Sundance Short Filmmaking Award, Sikumi is “a work of great intelligence and artistry that demands to be seen by as many people as possible” (Film Threat). 2008, in Iñupiaq with English subtitles, 35mm, 15 minutes. Copresented with the Sundance Institute’s Native American Initiative.
