A basketball movie tonight at UW-Green Bay

As part of “Native American Cinema” week, the Intertribal Student Council is inviting campus and community to the Monday night (March 4) showing of the film Edge of America at 7 p.m. in the Union’s Christie Theatre. One of the stars, actress DeLanna Studi, is visiting campus and will take part in a discussion. Based on a true story, Edge of America depicts the journey of a high school women’s basketball team on the Three Nations Reservation from a collection of struggling individuals into a contender and source of community pride. UW-Green Bay faculty member JP Leary says he thinks audiences will enjoy the film. (The fact it’s a basketball story being shown in March at the home of the Phoenix is a bonus.)
