NARF co-sponsors Niwot Native American Film Festival showing of On The Ice




On Friday, March 7 at 7:30pm, NARF will co-sponsor the Niwot Native American Film Festival showing of On The Ice.  On the Ice is a suspenseful feature-length drama about two teenage boys who have grown up like brothers in the comfortable claustrophobia of an isolated Alaskan town.  Early one morning, on a seal hunt with another teenager, an argument between the three boys quickly escalates into a tragic accident.  Bonded by their dark secret, the two best friends are forced to create one fabrication after another in order to survive.  The shocked boys stumble through guilt-fueled days, avoiding the suspicions of their community as they weave a web of deceit.  With their future in the balance, the two boys are forced to explore the limits of friendship and honor.

Sponsors include the Native American Producers Alliance (NAPA), Ni-wot Prairie Productions (NPP), Elysian Fields Auction Company, Native American Rights Fund (NARF), and WHIZZBang Studios.

Located at Elysian Fields Auctions 6924 79th Street, Niwot, Colorado (look for flags along 79th Street in Niwot near intersection of Niwot Road and 79th Street) Screenings are FREE with a suggested donation.  Ava Hamilton of Native American Producers Alliance & Film Festival Curator / Director will introduce the documentaries and films.
