Te Ata Exclusive Movie Screening

Tuesday, November 28, 2017 | 6:30-8:30 p.m. | Marvin Auditorium 101BC Movies

Te Ata (TAY’ AH-TAH) is currently showing in theaters across the country, but you can see it at your library for free! The film is based on the inspiring, true story of Mary Thompson Fisher, a woman who traversed cultural barriers to become one of the greatest Native American performers of all time. Born in Indian Territory, and raised on the songs and stories of her Chickasaw culture, Te Ata’s journey to find her true calling led her through isolation, discovery, love and a stage career that culminated in performances for a United States president, European royalty and audiences across the world. Yet, of all the stories she shared, none are more inspiring than her own.

Produced by the Chickasaw Nation, Te Ata features an all-star cast and has been nominated for awards left and right since it debuted at festivals earlier this year. Luckily, the screenwriter is Topekan Esther Lutrell, and she's sharing the film with her community in a special showing at your library for Native American Heritage Month. Lutrell will also conduct a Q&A session after the film.

Check out the official trailer on the movie’s site, get excited, and spread the word! http://www.teatathemovie.com/
