MARQUETTE – The Northern Michigan University Native American Student Association will be hosting the Upper Peninsula premiere of Sherman Alexie’s directorial debut, “The Business of Fancy Dining.” The premiere is part of the second annual “Indigenous Insights” series, which features a variety of programs that celebrate Native American culture and heritage.
The film will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 6 and Friday, Nov. 8, in Jamrich Hall room 102.
Alexie is best known as a poet, novelist and short-story writer, but became known to the film world with the 1998 film “Smoke Signals,” adapted from his stories. He was determined to control all creative and technical aspects of “The Business of Fancy Dancing,” and used a budget of less then $100,000.
Admission is $2 for NMU students with I.D. and $5 for the general public. This film is not rated, but contains scenes of sex and violence.
