Join BloomBars as they celebrate November as National American Indian Heritage Month with a screening of A Thousand Roads (2005, 40 min), directed by Chris Eyre, and produced by the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian. After the screening, there will be a discussion of the film with a representative from the National Museum of the American Indian. View the trailer here.

The film threads together four stories, taking us into the life of a stressed-out Mohawk stockbroker in Manhattan; a young Inupiat girl sent to live with her grandmother in Barrow, Alaska; a Navajo gang member who must find his core values in his reservation on the mesas of New Mexico; and a Quechua healer in Peru, attempting to save a sick child. Each journey through strikingly visual landscapes and each draws strength from their tribal pasts to transcend the challenges of the day and embrace the promises that await them.
