PLYMOUTH, N.H.-
A showing of the documentary film “Reel Injun” begins a unique partnership encouraging community-based conversations on a range of issues impacting social, civic and economic lives.PSU will present the film Wednesday, October 27, at 7 p.m. in Boyd 001

Hosted by Plymouth State University and New Hampshire Public Television, “Community Cinema” is a series of monthly programs in Concord and Plymouth. Using materials from the PBS series “Independent Lens” as a starter, participants discuss a variety of topics such as the tension between environmentalists and those who make a living from the land, immigration and genocide. The public is invited to these screenings and encouraged to engage in the conversation following each film.

“We hope to draw out diverse opinions,” says PSU Vice Provost Dr. Daniel Moore. “This is an opportunity to have conversations on serious social issues.”

First in the series is the documentary “Reel Injun,” a look at how Hollywood movies have influenced our perception and treatment of Native Americans. Clips from the silent era to today’s Clint Eastwood movies are interspersed with comments from filmmakers, actors, Native Americans and others. The film and discussion will be held in the lecture hall at PSU’s Science Center and is free and open to the public.
