The success of Scottish director, Steven Lewis Simpson’s adaptation of the
best-selling novel, Neither Wolf Nor Dog, defies logic—Hollywood logic that is.
It was audience-financed within 18 shoot days, a tiny crew, a 95-year-old star and a self-distributed release that started in small towns and is outperforming Hollywood blockbusters in numerous multiplexes. And now, it comes to our area. In partnership with the Heyde Center for the Arts, Neither Wolf Nor Dog will be screening to the community as a very special event on November 2nd at 7:30PM during Native Heritage Month.
Based on the best-selling Native American novel by Kent Nerburn, Neither Wolf Nor Dog takes audiences on a deeply moving road trip through contemporary and historical Lakota life and culture. Star, Dave Bald Eagle died at the age of 97 before the film was released. For a time his obituary was the most-read feature in the world on the BBC. NPR’s All Things Considered team debated whether Bald Eagle wa “the world’s most interesting man.”
