Film Screening: The Doe Boy
Date: November 22 2011 7:00pm Location: Council Chamber
In conjunction with Native American and Alaskan Heritage Month, the Office of Multicultural Affairs is screening the award-winning film THE DOE BOY, a coming-of-age story of a young Cherokee boy with mixed heritage who suffers from hemophilia. The film examines issues of mixed-race politics, cultural preservation, and self-identity. THE DOE BOY was the first feature film from writer and director Randy Redroad, and was based on his own experiences growing up in a Native American family; the film was shown in competition at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival where Redroad won the Filmmaker’s Award.
Co-Sponsored by Dr. Maureen Reed’s Exploration and Discovery class.
