Taika Waititi’s Boy Comes to Mescalero, New Mexico on May 25

Bird Runningwater and Sundance Institute's Native American and Indigenous Program invite you to a free special screening of Taika Waititi’s Boy, a 2010 Sundance Film Festival Official Selection.

Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at 7:00 p.m.
Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort
287 Carrizo Canyon Road
Mescalero, New Mexico

Inspired by his Oscar-nominated short, Two Cars, One Night, Taika Waititi offers a charming, funny, and earnest coming-of-age story where everybody has some coming-of-age to do—particularly Alamein (affably played by Waititi himself). Never short on humor, Waititi’s story is ultimately about three boys (one grown) reconciling fantasy with reality. Screening followed by a conversation with screenwriter/director Taika Waititi (Te Whanau-A-Apanui).

This screening  is a free, open-to-the-public event. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., first-come, first-served.
