Te Ata screening
Sunday, November 13, 2016 @ 15:15–17:15
The Little Theatre will screen Te Ata (Nathan Frankowski, USA 2016, Narrative Feature Film, 105 min.) as part of the High Falls Film Festival followed by a Q&A with director Te Ata.
Storyteller Te Ata was invited to perform at The White House in 1933 for FDR's first state dinner — an early highlight of a career that spanned six decades. Te Ata earned international fame presenting a unique one-woman show of American Indian heritage and culture to audiences across the United States, Canada, and Europe. She set her sights on Broadway and what she thought was her life's dream. Audition after audition she was rejected and Te Ata instead pursued her passion of storytelling.
