The University of New Mexico West, Office of the Executive Director and UNM's Department of American Studies present a preview of Dustinn Craig's film, "Apache Scouts" Monday, April 11 from 1-3 p.m. at the UNM West Rio Rancho campus, room 1226.

Still a work-in-progress, "Apache Scouts" was inspired by Craig's previous film, a biographical documentary on the Chiricahua Apache leader and medicine man, Geronimo. Drawing on a number of sources, from military documents to Apache oral history, Craig examines the complex narratives of the White Mountain Apaches who were recruited by the U.S. Army to capture or kill Geronimo.

Craig began his career filming young skateboarders on the White Mountain Apache reservation in Arizona. Now a nationally acclaimed filmmaker, Craig has won many awards, including the 2005 Rockefeller Media Arts Fellowship and a Documentary Fellowship with the 2005 Sundance Film Festival Native Institute.

The screening is free and open to the public.
