“Barking Water” Featured Film at Indigenous Film 2013 @ Su Teatro on Nov 13

Featured Film at Indigenous Film 2013DENVER, COLORADO – The International Institute for Indigenous Resource Management is pleased to partner with the Denver American Indian Commission and the Native American Rights Fund to present Indigenous Film 2013 @ Su Teatro, a monthly indigenous film series.

The November 13th program is the feature film “Barking Water,” by director Sterlin Harjo (Seminole/Creek).

“Barking Water” is a about Frankie and Irene, a 50-something, once- upon-a-time couple, have drifted apart but never stopped caring for each other. Stranded in a hospital and in failing health, Frankie asks Irene to spring him from the ward so he can see his daughter and grandchild one final time before he dies. As Irene drives, Frankie rides shotgun and reminisces of better days. Sometimes Frankie and Irene fight — there were reasons why they parted company – but at the end of the day, they are the love of each other’s lives. It’s a story about love, a story about saying goodbye – and definitely a story not to be missed.

Frankie is played by Richard Ray Whitman, a tribal citizen of the Muscogee Creek Tribe and Irene is played by Casey Camp-Horinek, who is Ponca.

Come early and grab a bite to eat at the Su Teatro concession — from popcorn to tamales, it gets our vote for best theater munchies in the city.

This program is co-sponsored by AARP. Opening remarks will be given by Roberto Rey, associate state director, multicultural outreach, AARP Colorado State Office.

A discussion will follow the film screening.
