Film Series: “Frozen River”

2008. USA. Dir: Courtney Hunt. With Melissa Leo, Misty Upham. 97 min.

Join us for the second installment of the Independent Filmmaker Speaker Series!

In a small New York town on the Canadian Border, two women—one white, one Mohawk, both in desperate need of money—forge an unlikely bond as they begin smuggling illegal immigrants across the border. This tense, gripping drama earned Leo her first Oscar nomination, and announced writer/director Hunt as a major new creative talent. Hunt will speak following the screening. Special support provided by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

DATE: Tonight, April 8th
PLACE: CFS, Goldsmith Family Cinema
