Legends From The Sky

The Wind River Hotel and Casino will be screening the film Legends from the Sky August 28 and 29. The film tells the story of a Native American veteran who encounters mysterious forces while searching for his missing grandfather. Director Holt Hamilton calls the film a Native American sci-fi thriller and is one of the first.

Featuring a Native American cast, the film was shot last year in Arizona and Washington. Released to theaters earlier this year, the film is now being screened in Indian communities across the country. Being able to visit the different areas helps Hamilton scout new shooting locations, meet upcoming talent and discover new stories.

The film isn’t the director’s first dip into the movie world. Other features include, Pete & Cleo, Turquoise Rose and More than Frybread which was also screened at Wind River in 2012. Hamilton will introduce the film in the Spring Mountain Room located next to the Cee’Nokuu Cafe.
