Billed as the first feature film entirely written, directed and acted by Native Americans, filmmaker Chris Eyre’s Smoke Signals is a funny, touching and honest look at what it is to be Indian in America. Smoke Signals follows Victor (Adam Beach) and Thomas-Builds-the-Fire (Evan Adams), two young Idaho men with wildly different memories of one Arnold Joseph (Gary Farmer), a former resident of their Idaho reservation who split years before and has just died in Phoenix. Arnold’s popular, athletic son, Victor, remembers him best as an alcoholic, occasionally abusive father who drove off one day and never came back. By contrast, the highly-quirky, always-talking Thomas Builds-the-Fire, whom Arnold had saved from certain death years earlier, has chosen to romanticize the man’s life and deeds in a way that drives Victor crazy. However, circumstances bring this odd couple together in a funny and funky road trip to Phoenix to retrieve Arnold’s ashes. Along the way, they must confront the reality of Arnold’s legacy, which has profound and unexpected effects on both of them. (Dir. by Chris Eyre, 1998, USA, 89 mins., Rated PG-13)
