Neither Wolf Nor Dog
1hr 50min CAST: Dave Bald Eagle, Christopher Sweeney, Richard Ray Whitman DIRECTOR: Steven Lewis Simpson ENDS JUNE 8
The story of a white author, Nerburn (Christopher Sweeney), who is summoned by Dan, a Lakota Elder (95-year-old Dave Bald Eagle), to write a book about his life and his people's history. Feeling unqualified, unworthy and reluctant, he turns the offer down but events conspire to draw him back in.
An impressive achievement and feels like an important story made with passion and deserves to be seen by audiences beyond the festival circuit.Dylan Matthew, Edinburgh Guide
The narrative becomes immersed in the physical and spiritual heart of the vast Dakota plains, their contemporary Native American people, and more emotively a tragic and shameful history.Caroline Crebbell, Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
