Reel Injun

When: Thu., Oct. 14, 6 & 8 p.m. 2010

Many John Wayne films qualify as classics, but they're hardly historically accurate or culturally sensitive. Neil Diamond's documentary Reel Injun: On the Trail of the Hollywood Indian is a remedy for shedding such cowboy-and-Indian stereotypes. Diamond (not the musician, by the way) uses hundreds of clips from silent films, recent blockbusters and everything in between to explore Native American portrayal in cinema. He also features interviews with activists, historians and celebrities including Clint Eastwood. There are two free screenings at 6 and 8 tonight in Colorado College's Cornerstone Arts Center Screening Room (825 N. Cascade Ave., ifsoc.org). — Leah Barker
