“Tribal Radio,” by Durango-based filmmaker Sean Owen, won Best Native American Documentary at the Santa Fe Film Festival. It was also nominated for Best Short Film and Best Short Film Director at Idyllwild International Film Festival, an indie festival held in California.
The documentary about KSUT-FM based in Ignacio, which is one of the first tribal radio stations in the U.S., tells the story of the Southern Ute Indian staff members who established it in 1976 and how it grew into a prominent regional station.
The ICL will screen the 27-minute film and then allow time for audience members to ask questions and have a dialogue with the director of the film himself, Mr. Owen.
Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
