Aberdeen Film Festival

September 29th, 2012

Not far to the west where the corners of the North American states of South Dakota, North Dakota and Minnesota meet, rode two intrepid filmmakers whose appearance, at any other place than this western one, would have caused a justified stir.

They were of very different build. One was tall whilst the other was much shorter. One was a man and the other a woman.

It was impossible to tell the age of the man. His flowing white beard suggested a great age but his blue eyes displayed the sharp look one observes on seamen and the inhabitants of wide-open plains.

The woman was clearly younger and had a child-like smile that belied the determined look in her dark eyes. Her facial features also suggested that she had an Indian heritage.

The two were on their way to the Aberdeen Film Festival to watch the film Thunderheart that was primarily shot on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation.

The actor Graham Green, who played the role of Walter Crow Horse, also attended this screening.

The showing was followed by a question-and-answer session with the attending actor who was given a standing ovation by all who attended.
