Screening of “Smoke Signals” (1998)

October 19, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Smoke Signals is a humorous yet serious story about Victor, a young man who Director Chris Eyre describes as “trying to forgive his father.” The story revolves around two young Coeur d’ Alene Indian men dealing with loss and the end of childhood innocence, giving viewers a glimpse into the contemporary Native American world. Based on a short story collection by WSU alumnus Sherman Alexie and filmed in Worley, Idaho, Smoke Signals was the first movie to be written, directed, and co-produced by Native Americans. The film won the 1998 Film Makers Trophy at the Sundance Film Festival. Hosted by the WSU Pullman Common Reading Program.
