‘Neither Wolf Nor Dog’ screening and author Q&A time set for Oct. 27

Sunday, October 14th, 2018

The campus community is invited to a special showing of the film Neither Wolf Nor Dog at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27, in Hoover 105. In addition to the movie, the author of the book on which the film is based, Kent Nerburn, will be present for a Q&A time.

Neither Wolf Nor Dog, the most successful non-Hollywood Native American film in years, is based on the award-winning novel by Oregon author Nerburn and stars Lakota elder Dave Bald Eagle. The film follows a Lakota elder who coaxes a white author into a road trip through the Dakotas to open the author’s eyes to the elder’s experience and perspective on the world.

The film, like the novel, has been used by schools, universities and other cultural groups, as it is not just a deeply moving, funny and thought-provoking film, but it takes the audience deep into an elder’s reality.

The theatrical trailer can be viewed here. Admission is free, and donations are welcome.

Email Tricia Hornback at phornback@georgefox.edu for more information.
