Film at Grantham Savoy Cinema promises to bridge American culture gap
Showing at Savoy Cinema for two screenings only is the acclaimed film Neither Wolf Nor Dog (12A) on Monday, January 13 (6pm) and Tuesday, January 14 (2pm).
Adapted from the Kent Nerburn novel of the same name, the story of Neither Wolf Nor Dog follows a white author who gets sucked into the heart of contemporary Native American life in the sparse lands of the Dakota’s by a 95-year-old Lakota elder and his side-kick.
First published in 1994 and winner of the Minnesota Book award in 1996, no other novel is seen to so successfully bridge the gap between white America and the Native American world.
Kent Nerburn, a goodhearted, white American writer, receives a mysterious phone call asking him to meet an old man on a distant Indian reservation.
Despite misgivings, Kent travels across the Great Plains to the old man Dan’s clapboard shack on a bleak and poverty stricken reservation.
