Screening for "The Exiles" in Riverton

Riverton Branch Library and Central Wyoming College Library present a public screening of the groundbreaking Native American Film, “The Exiles.”

Original cinematographer and Oscar winner, Erik Daarstad, will be the guest speaker. Erik will talk about the historical significance and the making of this film. He will also visit about these real life characters and answer any questions the audience may have.

“The Exiles” chronicles one night in the lives of young Native Americans living in the Bunker Hill district of Los Angeles in 1958. It is the story of three young American Indians who have left their reservations to live in downtown L.A. and who will once again be displaced. This documentary is reflective and entertaining with an awesome soundtrack that includes Southwestern Native American music and popular rock-n-roll songs from 1958.

Discover what happens to these young Indians on Tuesday, May 4 at 7:00 pm in the Riverton Branch Library Community Room.

For more information, please call the library at 307-856-3556.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council, through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
