MoCNA, in partnership with the New Mexico Museum of Art, presents a special screening of the iconic 1970’s film, Little Big Man, featuring actors Chief Dan George, Dustin Hoffman and Faye Dunaway and dubbed the Forrest Gump of its generation. Despite its comedic approach, this feature film has a clear social conscience. Little Big Man is considered an example of anti-establishment films of the period.

Please join guest host Chris Eyre, Cheyenne/Arapaho film director, producer, and chair of Santa Fe University of Art and Design’s Moving Image Arts Department (film/video), as he discusses films like Little Big Man, and implications in Native film making today.

Little Big Man – Recounting how the West was won through the eyes of a white man raised as a Native American, Arthur Penn’s 1970 adaptation of Thomas Berger’s satirical novel was a comic yet stinging allegory about the bloody results of American imperialism. – The New York Times.

This event is free to the public. This film is rated PG-13.
