Movie Night: "Skins"

Friday, 4/23 -

In a casual seating environment of couches and carpet, roughly 30 community members, mostly youth, gathered to watch the film “Skins.” Following the movie, a discussion was held about the causes and effects of alcoholism in tribal communities. Set on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, “Skins” showed a portion of Indian Country many here in the Owens Valley have not been exposed to, and in some ways could not relate to. Despite the contrasts of environment, the film displayed both the differences and common issues we face throughout our indigenous and rural communities.
