Dances with Wolves (1990, PG-13) FREE screening
The Central Arkansas Library System and its Bobby L. Roberts Library of Arkansas History & Art are celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of Arkansas author Dee Brown’s American classic Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee with a series of lectures and exhibitions that recognize the enduring importance and power of Brown’s groundbreaking volume.
Join us for a FREE virtual screening of Dances With Wolves on Saturday, October 24. This movie was selected because few other major Hollywood westerns capture the spirit of Brown’s book as well as this one. A Civil War soldier develops a relationship with a band of Lakota Indians. Attracted by the simplicity of their lifestyle, he chooses to leave his former life behind to be with them. Having observed him, they give the name Dances With Wolves. Soon he is a welcomed member of the tribe and falls in love with a white woman who has been raised in the tribe. Tragedy results when Union soldiers arrive with designs on the land.
