|A Pix in the Stix Special Saturday 8th June|
We our very proud and excited to have been chosen for the East Lothian Premiere of 'Neither Wolf nor Dog'.
"This is Scottish filmmaker Steven Lewis Simpson's Landmark Native American movie, 'Neither Wolf nor Dog' is in the midst of the longest first-run theatrical release of any movie in the US in at least a decade, which is all the more remarkable as he self-distributed it through his Edinburgh production company. It is beating Hollywood blockbusters when head-to-head in the same market."
The Kelvingrove Museum has a key link in this story as it was their repatriation of a sacred Ghost Shirt to the Lakota people almost 20-years ago that first brought Simpson out to Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. He has gone on to become probably the most established non-Native American person making Native American films today. 'Neither Wolf nor Dog' stars Lakota elder Dave Bald Eagle, who was 95-years-old at the time of filming. After he died his obituary was the most read story in the world on the BBC website for a time, and National Public Radio in the US debated whether he was "the world's most interesting man" due to his remarkable life. Dave Bald Eagle lost relatives at Wounded Knee, he was left for dead after being gunned down on D-Day but recovered and went on to work in films alongside Marilyn Monroe and Errol Flynn."
Tickets (£5.00) for this special event are on sale at Barney's, East Linton and The Crunchy Carrot, Dunbar. If any tickets remain they will be sold on the door.
