Jingle Dress (William Eigen, 2014)

The Augsburg Native American Film Series is happy to co-sponsor with Augsburg’s Student groups –AISA (Augsburg Indigenous Student Association) and Marginalized Voices in Film and Media–this free film screening on campus.   This feature length film is set and filmed in Minnesota and William Eigen will be there to talk with you about the film!

Desert Storm veteran John Red Elk gets word from his relatives that his long lost Uncle Norton is dead and vows to go down to the big city to find out what really happened to him. At its heart ‘The Jingle Dress’ is an immigrant story of an Ojibwe family that moves from the rural setting of a  Reservation in northern Minnesota down to the heart of the urban ‘hood’ of Minneapolis. We follow the Red Elk family as they discover this new culture and through their experiences and unvarnished perspective we are able to view our own culture with fresh eyes, as well as gain insight into their ancient, indigenous society.
