Iliff on the Road: “Holy Man” - Film and Evening with the Producers
Description: Holy Man is the story of Douglas White, an 88 year old Lakota Sioux medicine man from the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, who spent 17 years in jail for a crime he did not commit. During the making of this film, filmmakers uncovered new evidence of White’s innocence and brought the case back to Federal Court. Holy Man offers a rare glimpse into the world of Lakota religion. The movie, narrated by Martin Sheen, has won awards at the Sundance Film Festival, the Red Nation Film Festival, and has been nominated for an academy award in the independent film category. St. Andrew United Methodist Church is delighted to welcome producers Jennifer Jessum and Simon Joseph.
The film will be shown free of charge, St. Andrew UMC, who with Iliff is a member of the Progressive Christian Alliance.
